Each ticket includes a burger and side (fries or salad), and a drink. This family-friendly fundraiser will also feature a silent auction and a 50/50 draw.

Adult tickets are $25 each, children's tickets are $20 each, available at the Exploration Place front desk. Only 100 total spaces available.

More than a dozen silent auction items have already been donated, and more adding in before the big sizzling event.

"The Exploration Place is a non-profit organization and registered Canadian charity whose mission is to foster lifelong learning in the areas of science, technology, heritage, and culture," said organizers from the all-local museum and science centres. "Over the last two decades, Science Alliance camps have gotten kids aged 5-9 excited about science and learning through 'hands-on, minds-on' experiments, activities, games, presentations, guest speakers, field trips, our Explorers Urban Garden and more."

The funds raised by the Science Alliance Camps Burgers & Brew Night will go into their bursary program, allowing children from families of all socio-economic realities to enjoy a week of camp in their unique museum/science centre environment.
