A number of celebrities and influencers have been spotted rocking some of Science World’s newest merch.

On Tuesday, Vancouver-born actress Cobie Smulders, best known for her roles on How I Met Your Mother and Marvel’s Avengers, shared a post wearing a “The World Needs More Nerds” shirt.

The T-shirt is an extension of Science World’s latest fundraising campaign, which is calling for donations to help keep the non-profit organization’s doors open.

“The place responsible for my nerdiness is struggling due to COVID,” Smulders wrote on her Instagram. “Maybe gift a membership to someone or possibly this super cool T-shirt.”

“Science World supports teachers, students, and families all over the province with outreach programs and online learning,” says Larissa Dundon, a Science World spokesperson.

“Without as many visitors through its doors, important funds raised through ticket sales are dwindling, making the future of these programs uncertain.”

Other ways to support the non-profit include purchasing or gifting a membership, donating, starting a fundraising campaign, or visiting the facility.
