The Funhouse Science fair returns

The Science Fair is back at the Funhouse Commons on April 27th, from 12-4 PM! This beloved tradition, which began in 2001, will highlight and inspire the discoveries made by young scientific minds. After a four-year break, we are excited to bring this event back and inject new energy into our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects for the fair. Additionally, we welcome community members who are passionate about conservation and environmental science to share their work as vendors or volunteers. If you are 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 the 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 are as follows: High School – 1st place $500, 2nd place $350, 3rd place $250; Middle School – 1st place $250, 2nd place $150, 3rd place $100; Elementary – 1st place $100, 2nd place $75, 3rd place $50.

We are seeking support from the community to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of food
