Science World at TELUS World of Science

What's it like exploring under the dome? Check out our social stream of visitor-created photos and videos!

From the Gallery Blogs

If you've seen TELUS World of Science from the Skytrain or have had the chance to explore the  Ken Spencer Science Park over the last two years, you’ve probably encountered the Urban Density exhibit—affectionately nicknamed the “Lollipop Forest”. The Urban Density exhibit wasn’t a typical Science World interactive—it walked the fine line between a sustainability-themed exhibit and dramatic public art. It was designed to inspire dialogue about space becoming a scarce resource. As the human population continues to grow, the ecological and social consequences of housing density crop up.

Do you know how to make cold? In this video, we'll create an endothermic reaction (a reaction that absorbs energy rather than releasing it) on our infrared camera. Watch the materials combine as we demonstrate the "coldfront" effect. 

In grade school, almost everyone hears that only 2.5% of the world’s massive 1.4 billion cubic kilometers of water is fresh, and out of that amount, 70% is locked up in the icecaps of Antarctica and Greenland, leaving 30% (a measly 0.7% of total water resources worldwide!) available for cons
