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.

CELEBRATION OF SCIENCE 2019

On February 21, 2019, will be held the 18th edition of the Foundation's Annual Benefit Event, Celebration of Science 2019. More than 350 guests will be gathered to support the Science Centre’s educational mission. The funds raised during this evening will allow us to continue our mission of raising awareness of science and technology with the young and young at heart, in the greater Montreal region. In addition, these funds will allow us to support the creation of the Science Center of tomorrow so that it remains as relevant and innovative as ever!

Last year, more than $ 295 000 was raised during the evening and Canada Lands Company took the opportunity to announce that it would double this amount to $ 590,000. It will be the same for all funds raised in 2018, up to a maximum of $1.5 million! There is no better time to give!

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.
