The Gift of Science

The Ontario Science Centre stimulates curiosity, enables discovery and inspires action. Our goal is to engage more people in science, for the better future of our world. We need donor support now to engage more people and promote the value of science for all. Your gift of science will impact -

Community Access Programs

Adopt-A-Class Programs

School Bus

Science Experiences

by providing resources to create original exhibits and experiences that connect people with science that matters today.

Science Education

by providing resources for our Science School and enable us to integrate curriculum linkages into exhibition halls in new ways that connect science to the everyday lives of students

Area of Greatest Need

Unrestricted gifts are amongst the most important and valuable to the Centre because they can be used where the need is the greatest. Donors support every facet of our daily operations – exhibits, educational programs, the development of resources for educators and maintaining our facilities.
