What's that smell?

Popcorn? Cotton candy? Animal poop?

Did you know?

Did you know you can differentiate among 10,000 different odours? Your nose is also 10,000 times as sensitive as your taste buds! More than any other sense, smell reaches directly into your brain's emotional centre where your memories live, that's why smells can evoke strong nostalgia. Our noses are AMAZING! 

Put your sense of smell to the test, come see if you can figure out which circus odour you are smelling at CIRCUS! Science Under the Big Top running from February 2 to June 9, 2019 at TELUS Spark.
