This year, the several BC-based tech companies have rallied together to ‘Sweat for Science’ as a part of the Science Fair Foundation BC’s annual fundraiser, put together in partnership with AbCellera.
Among the other key participating teams are Genome BC and Aspect Biosystems.
Participating in this event helps raise funds and awareness for science fairs and STEM programming across BC and the Yukon. STEM education is not always accessible for youth – whether it’s because they are living in remote communities, or their school doesn’t have volunteer support to put together a science fair. Sweatin’ for Science aims to change that.
The Sweatin’ for Science event app allows participants to upload your photos to their event album to highlight your achievements and motivate others to get their sweat on! Participants are also encouraged to tag #SweatinForScience on social media.
Registration for the event opened in February 2023, and the program runs May 1-31, 2023. Sweatin’ for Science takes place virtually in communities across BC & Yukon, those outside BC or Canada can still take part.
The money raised helps support Science Fair Foundation BC’s STEM education, mentorship, financial aid programs made available for youth in BC and Yukon. Sign up online here.
