Montréal, February 21, 2020 – More than $ 215 382 was raised Thursday evening at the 19th Celebration of Science. The funds will be used to renew the Clic! exhibition, a science exploration zone for children aged 4 to 7, as well as offering free access to over a hundred disadvantaged families.

The most delightful fundraising event in town, hosted by Edith Cochrane, also gave guests an opportunity to visit Explore, the new interactive zone inaugurated at the end of November. More than 300 guests gathered to support the educational mission of Quebec’s only science centre.

" I am fortunate to have talented, committed creative teams – at both the Science Centre and the Old Port of Montréal – whom I cannot thank enough. With your help, we will honour that talent by making the next 20 years even more memorable" said Isabel Dansereau, Executive Director of the Science Centre Foundation.
