Science World Class Field Trip Bursary

Thanks to support from Science World’s Science of Cocktails, and the Government of Canada through the CanCode program, we are thrilled to offer bursaries for underserved schools to support their class field trips in the 2018/19 school year.

Since we began the program in 2017, over 23,000 students have visited Science World at TELUS World of Science.

Who is eligible for a Class Field Trip Bursary?

  • BC ministry-funded classes in grades K12.
  • Classes must clearly demonstrate need for financial assistance.
  • Classes must describe how learning will be extended beyond the field trip, and how it is connected to school or district goals and/or community resources.

What is the Class Field Trip Bursary for?

Bursaries subsidize 50 to 100% of general admission, and return transportation (school bus fees or Translink invoice up to $500, unless otherwise identified) for one to two classes per request.
The balance of the fees must be provided by the school.
The transportation portion of the bursary will be reimbursed to your school following your visit (school bus or bulk transit purchase only). For more information about pre-purchasing transit tickets please visit Translink
Science World class field trip bursaries do not fund overnight trips or the cost of parking (there is no school bus parking available at TELUS World of Science).
The field trip bursary will not be applied to school programs, OMNIMAX® films, and exhibition charges. 

When are bursaries approved?  

Please check this page in late August 2019. 

What do I need to do after my bursary is approved?

Classes awarded a bursary should book their field trip through our website and select/reserve their transportation. Classes awarded a bursary will be asked to complete an evaluation form during the week following their field trip, and may be asked for additional feedback specific to the bursary.

The balance due and method of payment will be determined and confirmed with the contact teacher prior to completing the class booking.

Bursary Feedback

"For some students this will be the first time experiencing the wonders of Science World. We believe it is important for students to take their learning outside the classroom and to make new discoveries around their community."

"This field trip will be an unforgettable learning experience for our students. Our students are excited at the prospect of being able to engage in the interactive displays, feature exhibitions and live science demonstrations that are not available in the context of the school classroom. As we are an inner-city school, many of our students may not have the opportunity to attend such an enriching educational experience outside of school."

Thank you
