What Is Sweatin' for Science?

The Science Fair Fun Run Goes Virtual! The event is going virtual in 2021 and we are inviting all science fair participants, supporters and enthusiasts to join us and support science fairs throughout BC and the Yukon!


From April 15 to May 29, we’ll be logging our activity and collecting kilometres to make our way around BC and Yukon and cheer on this year's science fair participants across BC and the Yukon. The money we raise helps support science fairs and ensure their sustainability for years to come. Sweatin’ For Science has been setting the pace in the knowledge race for 20 years as the Science Fair Fun Run!

 

How to Get Involved

Join us virtually and collect km by logging your walks, ski runs and bike rides! As you go, collect funds and you'll receive an entry to win prizes for every $100 you raise!


When?

Now is the time to get your team together. Registration will open on March 15 and we'll all be tracking our activity together from April 15 to May 29 and putting the km together to "run" around BC and Yukon and through all the communities that participate in regional science fairs.


Where?

The Province + Yukon are your Oyster! This year you can take part in any setting! Be it your living room, neighbourhood streets and ski hills in your community, take photos of you 'getting your sweat on' and tag us #sweatinforscience
