Explosions, Ice Cream & Flashlight Dance Parties!

When the science centre closes... the ultimate sleepover experience begins! 

Sleepover Programs at the science centre are unlike any other field trip in the city. We'll help you and your students create lasting memories, as we show you to the best slumber party ever! 

Treat your class to an evening of incredible activities. Choose from one of our three Sleepover packages:

  • Astronomy Sleepover: Embark on an out-of-this world journey through the solar system!  Students will enjoy a live, interactive planetarium show and a space-science demonstration. Astronomy Sleepovers can be tailored to Alberta's Grade 6 or Grade 9 space-science curriculum. Please notify us at time of booking if you'd like us to craft your program to cover specific content. 
  • Ecology Sleepover: Play a giant game of survival tag! Students will explore predator-prey relationships and learn about resource webs.
  • Engineering Sleepover: Students will compete in competitive rollercoaster builds!  Compete with your classmates to see who can build the most thrilling rollercoaster! Loops, upside down twists & an entire science centre to build in!  Plus: hands-on physics activities! Students will learn about circuitry and create their own electronic circuits.

Your class will also enjoy: 

  • Travelling to far-away lands, discovering exotic wildlife or exploring the far reaches of the galaxy when you watch an IMAX film on Alberta's largest screen!
  • Discovering each of the exhibit galleries like never before. 
  • Exploring the Feature Exhibition (when available).
