We've run, walked and danced our way around BC and Yukon for the past 6 weeks to raise funds that will ensure the success and sustainability of science fairs across BC and Yukon. 

The show will started with a warm-up hosted by DANCYPL3Y, who you may recognize from Movin' Mondays. We also heard from the Presenting Sponsor, STEMCELL Technologies, and the Executive Director of the Science Fair Foundation BC, Madeleine Guenette.

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!
