New Limited-Time Program: Action Reaction Contraption
TELUS Spark has developed an awesome new limited-time workshop endorsed by Beakerhead, Calgary's largest arts and engineering festival, available for booking throughout September and October. Call us today to reserve this 90-minute workshop that will challenge and draw out your students' inner engineers! The challenge? Design a Chain Reaction Machine using hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts and skills in a creative and collaborative showcase environment. Students will design, build and test elements that when combined will create a whole-class Chain Reaction Machine!
About School Programs at TELUS Spark:
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.
