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
  • To know more about the program’ eligibility criteria.

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.

In spring 2021 (date to be confirmed), the 20th edition of the Foundation's Annual Benefit Event, Celebration of Science, will take place at the Montreal Science Center. 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.
