Access Program

Access Program

TELUS Spark, Calgary’s Science Centre, is for everyone.

Financial hardship should not be a barrier for anyone to explore the powerful world of science!

To ensure the ticket price is not a barrier to access for underserved populations, Spark operates an access program that supports students, families and individuals requiring financial assistance to enter Calgary’s science centre. Through community partnerships, Spark warmly welcomes thousands with free passes, subsidized school programs and reduced rates. Six specialized programs are all designed to ensure that everyone can benefit from the hands-on educational experiences that a science centre has to offer.

School Board Partnerships

School Board Partnerships with Calgary Board of Education, the Calgary Catholic School District and Stoney Education Authority, that provide subsidized school programs and bussing for underserved schools identified by the boards.

Fair Entry Program

Spark is part of the Fair Entry Program, operated by the City of Calgary, offering 75% off to recreation facilities and attractions for low-income residents in the program.
