Assembly Presentations

Many things have changed over the past few months, but one thing remains the same: Our Science in Motion (SIM) team is ready to visit your school! Your school will enjoy the same high quality science programming, just in a slightly different format, in order to meet ongoing COVID-19 public health and safety regulations.

Science in Motion offers theme based assemblies* that are created for a wide range of grade levels and intended to ignite curiosity, inspire discovery, and celebrate science!

  • The SIM team wear appropriate PPE and maintain physical distance from students and staff.
  • Please follow current gathering guidelines when planning for how many students will be present for each Assembly. Due to Alberta Public Health and Safety Guidelines, the maximum number of students in an assembly presentation should not exceed one cohort of students. If the school is not using a cohort system, the maximum number of students should not exceed 50 per assembly and students should be physically distanced from each other and from the presenter.
  • The SIM team will conduct health screenings prior to arriving at your school and will participate in necessary health screenings upon arrival.
  • Please notify TELUS World of Science - Edmonton in advance if your school has any further restrictions or guidelines in place that are required at your school.
  • Please also notify our Bookings Office if our visit needs to be canceled due to an outbreak or school closure. We will reschedule with no penalty.

*All assemblies require 2 tables, a garbage can, 2 or more electrical outlets, and access to water. Assemblies must be booked in a large space, such as a gymnasium. Classrooms and typical libraries are not suitable for assemblies. Assemblies are 45 minutes in length.

Available Assemblies:

Bite-Sized Science

A bit of this and a bit of that… Students engage in a variety of exciting demonstrations that spark their imaginations! Satisfy their cravings for science as we use a singing fire tube, chemical reactions, flaming sound waves, and other engaging experiments.


Experience the ultimate cool as we explore the effects of liquid nitrogen on matter. Discover the reaction when gases, liquids, and solids are exposed to extreme temperature changes.

Best Curriculum Fit:

Grade 2 — Hot and Cold Temperature.

Grade 7 — Heat and Temperature


Discover the shocking world of electricity and charged particles. We explore static electricity, current electricity, attraction, and repulsion through the use of a plasma globe, Tesla coil, and a Van de Graaff generator.

Fire & Gas

We explore the fascinating phenomenon of fire with an in-depth look into combustion. Observe the creation of a fire cyclone, see flames of bright fuchsia, green, and red, and solve the mystery of the gases. Students are sure to get a BANG out of this assembly.

For the Love of Chemistry

Can two clear liquids combine to make all the colours of the rainbow? Find out for yourself! Get ready for exciting sights and sounds as we explore the wonderful world of chemistry. Students witness reactions and chemistry like never before!

Use the Force

Let’s harness the power of the forces around us! We will show you the levitation of a hovercraft, the thrust that a rocket engine can provide, and the velocity of a ping pong ball in our pneumatic cannon. Come and learn many exciting ways to use the forces of physics!

Best Curriculum Fit:

Grade 4 Building Devices and Vehicles that Move

Grade 6 Sky Science, Air and Aerodynamics

Grade 7 Structures and Forces

Grade 9 —Space Exploration

K-12 General Science
