Every day the TELUS World of Science – Edmonton team ignites curiosity, inspires discovery and celebrates science with the community.
When you visit the science centre, you will notice a lot of construction excitement taking place as part of the science centre’s expansion, The Aurora Project.
The new expanded science centre will feature:
- an Arctic exhibition
- a new Health Zone exhibition
- an expanded guest amenities
- a new community plaza
- outdoor spaces
and much, much more.
The Aurora Project is the reimagining of TELUS World of Science – Edmonton. It will redefine what a science centre can be. By updating old galleries and creating new experiences, we will continue to inspire the limitless potential of our children and future generations to come. Together we are building this NEW science centre. To date, $39.5 million has been raised and an additional $2 million is needed to make this vision a reality. Be a part of the Aurora Project. Your gift allows for children to have that moment of awe that forever changes their lives and opens up a whole new world to explore and grow. We will continue to inspire generations of astronauts, innovators, and big dreamers – with your help we will continue to engage Albertan’s hearts and minds in science. Donate today!
Over the next 12 months the science centre building will not re-open as a whole. Instead, we will expand our virtual and physical outreach programs and take science beyond just the walls of the building. Other opportunities will be explored to open limited areas of the science centre for special programming and community events.
Since 1984, TELUS World of Science – Edmonton, a charitable organization, operated by the Edmonton Space & Science Foundation, has been sharing science with the community and inspiring the next generation of scientists, researchers, teachers and leaders.
