Stories of our community involvement
Coastal Community is proud to present Nanaimo Science with $10,000 from our Relief and Resiliency Fund! Coastal Community's Alana Halaliku is presenting to Elaine Parker from Nanaimo Science.

As a result of Covid, Nanaimo Science has lost their physical space and has had pivot to find a temporary space and now a permanent space.

Thank you to @ VMAC #AirInnovated for their generous sponsorship of our Saturday Morning Science program! Our first 4-week series that started November 7th is all about LEGO robotics. We are looking forward to building with our students and having tons of fun!
We were extremely excited to be selected by Mid Island Co-op for their Community Sponsorship & Funding Program.

With these funds, we will be able to provide our students with digital microscopes and add to our classroom set of tablets.

The digital microscopes will let children get an extremely close look at specimens out in the field (they’re battery powered!), and because they use screens instead of eye pieces, they will also help us preserve physical distancing while teaching. Furthermore, all surfaces can be sanitized.
The tablets will also help support our activities in a variety of ways: for coding and LEGO activities, to stop-motion movie making, and for plant identification outdoors.

We are so grateful to Mid Island Co-op for this support, particularly during these challenging COVID times!

Mid Island Co-op has been a longtime supporter of Nanaimo Science. Thank you again for helping us inspire curious minds!

In the wake of COVID-19, we have had to cancel our traditional Halloween activities including the Spooktacular Science Challenge normally held at Bowen Park and the Great Pumpkin Toss, which launched (pun intended!) with Alair Homes last year.

We are hosting a small workshop at Beban Park Social Centre instead on October 31st for young children (ages 5-9). For more information and registration details, please visit:

Joe Cristiano is our Chief Community and Marketing Officer here at Coastal. Joe’s been with us for 24 years and has always believed in making a meaningful difference to his community. He was recently drawn as a winner in our Employee Volunteer Program through his volunteer work as a board member with Nanaimo Science.

Asked why he chose to support this organization, Joe explained, “I believe knowledge, mastery and application of science is essential in creating a strong economy and a thriving community and region, and increasingly so in the future. I think it’s both clever and cool to engage kids with science stuff in a fun and hands-on way with the goal of sparking interest and fascination in science that will hopefully stay with them for many years.”
He directed his winning funds from the program toward Nanaimo Science for all the reasons he chose to volunteer for them. According to Joe, “They can use the extra funds to help them succeed through these ‘COVID times’ and beyond.”
