Booking FAQ

Find answers to frequently asked questions about booking a School Program.

1. How far in advance do I need to book a School Program?

School programs/ field trips need to be booked a minimum of 6 weeks in advance, but more notice is recommended as spaces are limited.

2. Who can get school rates?

A group of students and their supervisors shall be considered a school group if they are participating in a field trip organized through an institution accredited by Alberta Education and overseen by an Alberta School Authority (or equivalent from another province or country). Bookings need to be made directly by the school. Requests from third-party organizations booking on the school’s behalf will not be accepted.

3. How many classes can I book for?

Individual classes will each receive their own booking confirmation and schedule. All students and chaperones with a class must be included on one booking, paid for as a single group, and must check in as a group on the day of the field trip.

4. Do all the students need to be in the same grade?

To ensure a high-quality program, the Science Centre recommends that all students participating in a program be within the grade or grade-range specified for the program.

5. How many adults (teachers and chaperones) do we need to bring for our field trip?

All school groups require adult supervision during their in-person field trip. The minimum number of recommended adults is:

  • Grades K-6 require 1 adult per 5 students.
  • Grades 7-12 require 1 adult per 10 students.

Bookings will include up to a maximum of 6 adults per class. Additional adults wishing to join the group and/or pay their own admission individually will be charged full public rates.

6. Do adult chaperones need to supervise the students?

Teachers and chaperones are responsible for the behavior of their group and are required to actively supervise and stay with students during their visit to TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.

7. What if we are late to our program or show?

Late arrival for programming will result in parts of the programming being omitted.

Late arrivals for IMAX and Zeidler Dome shows will not be allowed entry once the show has started.

Late arrivals will be responsible for any fees related to any missed programs or show.

8. Do you have storage for coats and backpacks?

We have storage for coats and some limited storage for bagged lunches, but not backpacks. Please do not bring backpacks or excess winter gear.

9. Where do we eat lunch?

When you book, you will have the opportunity to request a lunch space. A time will be assigned on your booking schedule.

10. What if I need to make a change to my booking?

You have 5 business days from when you receive your booking to make any changes and provide payment. Once payment has been made on your booking it is considered confirmed. Changes made to a confirmed booking will be charged a $25 administration fee per change/item.

Changes include but are not limited to:
