Outstanding Achievement in the Audience Outreach

TELUS Spark Science Centre has been honoured for the Canadian Museums Association / Association des musées canadiens Award of Outstanding Achievement in the Audience Outreach category. Spark is proud to engage students in unexpected encounters with science that surprise and delight, and be able to meet them where they are at since they can’t always make it to Spark's building.
