We are pleased to announce Capital Power’s generous sponsorship of the Wind Turbine Exhibit in support of The Aurora Project at TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.

The Wind Turbine Exhibit supported by Capital Power is fuelling innovation in The Science Garage at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton. This successful maker-space exhibit allows guests to come in and Design, Build, Test their own wind turbine to see how efficient it is and how much wind energy it generates. This exhibit allows for guests young and old to develop creative problem-solving skills while collaborating and testing their designs.

“Capital Power is proud to support TELUS World of Science - Edmonton and The Aurora Project. The TELUS World of Science - Edmonton brings excitement and energy to science and technology and expands ideas about what’s possible in these fields of study. At Capital Power, we deliver responsible energy for tomorrow through innovation, expertise, and of course, science and technology. Partnering together to share how we harness the power of wind in the Wind Turbine Exhibit supported by Capital Power at TELUS World of Science – Edmonton was a natural fit.”

Sian Barraclough, VP, Strategy & Sustainability, Capital Power

Capital Power has allowed us to bring The Aurora Project to life through this hands-on, interactive experience for our guests. Check out the video above to learn more about this exhibit today.

The Aurora Project is now in its final phase and is reimagining and redefining what a science centre can be. When The Aurora Project is completed in 2022, every gallery in the science centre will have been updated to address emerging trends in science and technology from a uniquely Albertan perspective.

With $2 million to go until we reach our goal of $41.5 million, we are looking for community support to get us over the finish line as we transform the science centre.

While The Science Garage hasn’t re-opened just yet, we can’t wait for you to come and tinker with engineering in the Wind Turbine Exhibit generously supported by Capital Power as soon as we do.

How did the wildlife rescue know that this blackbird was almost 16 years old and how do scientists know how long animals live in the wild?
