The Funhouse Science fair returns

The Funhouse Commons is excited to host the 20th Science Fair on Saturday, April 27th from 12-4 PM! This event, which began in 2001, aims to showcase and inspire the scientific discoveries made by young minds. After a four-year hiatus, we are thrilled to bring this beloved tradition back and rejuvenate our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects for the fair. In addition, we welcome community members who are passionate about conservation and environmental science to share their work as vendors or volunteers. If you’re interested in participating, please contact

The Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme and will feature free food and beverages, live music, community exhibits, and impressive displays from our young participants. Each participant will receive an award, with the top three projects in elementary, middle, and high school categories chosen by our esteemed judges. The coveted Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will be awarded to the best-in-show projects.

Prizes for the competition include $500 for first place in high school, $350 for second place in high school, $250 for first place in middle school, $150 for second place in middle school, $100 for first place in elementary school, $75 for second place in elementary school, and $50 for third place in elementary school.

We need your help to make this event a success! We’re looking for community support to raise $5,000 to cover costs such as food
