Science centre scholarship

The Okanagan Science Centre is offering the Marg Sim Memorial Scholarship of $300 to a graduating North Okanagan high school student.

The scholarship is open to students who are members of the Okanagan Science Centre, graduating high school this spring and entering a post-secondary program in the sciences, engineering or education in the fall. Information on how to apply is available on the Okanagan Science Centre website.

In 1985 Marg and Bill Sim founded the Vernon Science and Discovery Society, which started operating the Okanagan Science Centre in 1991.

Marg was the first one to bring dinosaurs to the science centre, re-building a large dinosaur that sat on the roof of the science centre. She regularly drove long-time Okanagan Science Centre employee Kevin Aschenmeier through the Okanagan as he delivered planetarium shows with our portable StarLab at schools and organizations throughout the region.
