The last time you took a science course the materials were probably not as enticing as what’s on offer at the Science of Cocktails: 25 drink stations helmed by pro bartenders, each set to create something with some serious cool components, all inspired by science.

This popular annual event held at Science World is a fundraiser that helps get thousands of underserved school kids the chance to explore the fun learning venue, as all proceeds support the Science World Class Field Trip Bursary Program.

This is a terrific opportunity to have an incredible night out at a unique venue, and enjoy cocktails from the talented minds behind the stick at popular Vancouver watering holes like The Keefer Bar, The Diamond, Clough Club, Fairmont Pacific Rim, and many more.

Plus, the drinks are served alongside gourmet bites from some of Vancouver’s best catering groups and restaurants, like The Dirty Apron, The Lazy Gourmet, Glowbal Group, and more.

While the general admission tickets to this hands-on evening of food and drink are gone, there are still VIP tickets available.
