Too Cool for School

Saturday, May 8, 2010 - 16:00 to 20:00

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL ART & SCIENCE FAIR: The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair is an interdisciplinary event at which people from diverse fields share art and information and engage in friendly competition. The event is structured just like a school science fair - participants will display their projects on rows of tables and will be on hand to discuss their work with the public.

The difference, however, is that this event is as much about art as it is about science..The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair was invented to showcase amazing acts of imagination.and invention that might never otherwise see the light of day. It recognizes that there is a little bit of art and a little bit of science in everyone. Society encourages us to separate the two andoften our true creative energies are buried due to the requirements of our chosen disciplines.

Harbourfront Centre and the Ontario Science Centre have announced a groundbreaking partnership that will extend the Too Cool For School programme into the autumn; both institutions will make selections from the fair for public exhibition.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
