Every day the TELUS World of Science – Edmonton team ignites curiosity, inspires discovery and celebrates science with the community.
We do so through many channels like virtually with summer camps, Maker Mondays and curriculum based videos as well as in person experiences like The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Exhibition and our IMAX Theatre.
When you visit the science centre this summer, 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.
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.
“This is a time of incredible change and growth for the science centre and while I encourage everyone to come out and see the new Ripley’s exhibition and an IMAX film, I also encourage everyone to learn about how the science centre is growing to even better serve our community. Certainly, with all that has happened recently with the global pandemic, it is clear that science has never been more important or relevant in our daily lives,” said, Alan Nursall, President and CEO, TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.
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.
