Aurora Project

Be a part of the New TELUS World of Science - Edmonton Today!

TELUS World of Science – Edmonton is a beloved, iconic part of the city which has led the science conversation in our region for over three decades. The Aurora Project will modernize a number of the facility’s exhibits ensuring that it remains on the forefront of advances in STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. The project will also see the facility expand by 20,000 sq. ft. to incorporate a new Arctic Gallery which will provoke conversations around the scientific and cultural challenges facing Canada’s North.

We have begun Phase 3 of this ambitious expansion, which has seen a new early childhood development area open as CuriousCity, as well as the creation of our new Nature Exchange Gallery. These new galleries continue to inspire discovery within the minds of the thousands of visitors who visit TELUS World of Science – Edmonton annually.

The gift you provide today will help us to inspire. There is no telling the difference that can be made in the lives of our region’s families as their curiosity is ignited within our doors.

JOIN US AS WE BRING THE AURORA PROJECT TO LIFE

This is not incremental change – this is a bold, unique vision of what a science centre can be. It will resonate with the community, reflecting our values as a leader in education and prosperity. It will inspire, educate, and transform!
