INSPIRING THE MINDS OF TOMORROW

Could your next family outing to the Science Centre be the spark that inspires the most important scientific breakthrough of the next 50 years?

This is what we believe, and this is what drives us. Every day, the Science Centre Foundation works at fostering the next generation of scientists, researchers, engineers, technologists (and others!) by sharing its passion for science with youths who may later choose to pursue a career in the field of sciences.

Science in Action

The support of the Foundation provides the Montréal Science Centre with important resources, including the ability to create innovative, stimulating, and engaging content. Since 2014, the Foundation's contributions have enabled the development of three new permanent exhibitions and educational programs, in addition to helping the MSC lend financial support to the Eurêka! Festival.

Science Outreach

Every year, thanks to its extensive sponsorphip program, the Foundation also offers to the largest number of children possible the opportunity to introduce themselves to science and technology:

  • Free passes for nearly 10,000 underprivileged youths to spend the day at the MSC
  • Free yearly MSC memberships to more than 100 underprivileged families

Science of the Future

Visiting the Science Centre from an early age helps young people develop an interest in science and encourages many of them to pursue higher education in sciences.

CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUTURE - BE PART OF THE NEXT CELEBRATION OF SCIENCE EVENING

The 17th edition of the Foundation's Annual Benefit Event' Celebration of Science 2018, was held on February 22. Over 350 guests gathered to support the centre’s educational mission. More than $295 000 was raised during the evening and these funds will go towards among other things, the renewal of permanent exhibitions and providing free admission to disadvantaged families.

Canada Lands Company took the opportunity to announce that it would double this amount, taking the total of the evening to $590 000, and all funds raised in 2018 up to a maximum of $1.5 million.

This contribution will support the efforts of the Foundation and the Science Centre in delivering world-class programs to all of our visitors”, said Jocelyne Houle, Foundation Trustee and member of the Board of Directors.
