UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who voted. We didn’t win but there was a great show of support from the community. It gave everyone a chance to learn more about our program and organization.
They will give money to our parent organization (Science World) but the money is earmarked for the teen Future Science Leaders program. To vote:
- Vote for ‘Science World’ on the Facebook poll
- Tweet @car2goVancouver and tell them that you are voting for Science World
There doesn’t seem to be a restriction on the location of voters so please vote wherever you are.
Future Science Leaders is an enrichment program to inspire and challenge the top students to excel in science and technology. Receiving this money would help us maintain and improve the program. I first wrote about the idea for the program in 2010 and we are now in the third year of program delivery.
