The Aurora Project is reimagining TELUS World of Science – Edmonton and redefining what a science centre can be. This initiative is a catalyst for creativity and innovation, breathing new life into one of Alberta’s most beloved facilities. Through the Aurora Project we are building a science centre that makes science and technology accessible for all ages and connects big thinkers, dreamers, and innovators.
To date, we have raised $39.5 million and need an additional $2 million to make this vision a reality. Every donation made to the Aurora Project invests in the limitless potential of our children and future generations to come. You can be a part of building a science centre that inspires curiosity in your community.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation today, every gift will make a great difference for hands-on science education in your community.
Support the Aurora Project
Because the sky isn’t the limit. Because celebrating science opens up a world of discovery. Because curious minds need space to explore. Currently, the science centre has the smallest footprint out of all major science centre’s in Canada, yet we have more annual guests for our size than any other. The demand for more programming and hands-on learning is strong, and our centre needs to grow to reflect the needs of our community.
Your gift will create new galleries which will allow children and adults to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM). Our children need to explore STEAM beyond the classroom by learning through hands-on experiences like the ones here at the science centre. STEAM increases the ability to think critically and creatively, problem solve, become a leader or entrepreneur, and adapt to change.
Your gift in support of the Aurora Project will ignite curiosity and inspire discovery in 86,000 students per year and close to 500,000 annually visitors from around the world as they explore new experiences during their visit to the science centre.
This bold new vision continues as we break ground on the expansion of the science centre in Summer 2020. This final phase will feature a new Arctic exhibition that will take guests on a journey to the North, a completely renovated Health exhibition in the Allard Family Gallery, and engaging outdoor exploration spaces. This project will keep TELUS World of Science – Edmonton on the forefront of the amazing world of science and technology and we cannot wait for you to experience it.
