TELUS Spark is a different kind of Science Centre. It’s a place where visitors and students are encouraged to ignite their passion for discovery and to explore the extraordinary. We don’t just convey information. You are encouraged to pave your own path and discover answers through a participatory approach to all programs and exhibits. We believe that fostering and celebrating innovative and critical thinking is the key to inspiring generations of Albertans and Canadians to explore interests and careers in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Sparking a passion and igniting a curiosity in children in these areas is at the forefront of our school programming at TELUS Spark. Coupled with a creative and artistic environment, we are building for the future of our community by growing the 21st century skills needed to further our city, the province, the country, and the world.
Please note that School Program rates are discounted. Memberships, promotions, discounts or coupons may not be redeemed for School Program Bookings.

Through their experiences here, students will develop and practice the skills needed to make an impact on our world and our future.
