Check out a show in our Science Theatre and take a break from all the exhibits for a bit. In this electronic projection theatre, you can pop in and watch educational live and taped shows on a variety of topics, often related to our feature exhibitions. And the best part? Science Theatre shows are free with your Science World at TELUS World of Science general admission.
Human Body: Strength
The human body is engineered for strength, power and endurance. Bone is sturdy as concrete but flexible and light enough to resist breaking. Our muscles and joints have far greater strength and endurance than we know. Marvel at extraordinary tales of human strength told with stunning see-through "anatomy in motion."
Produced by Discovery Communications Inc. Hi-def Cinema from CineMuse.
Follow the intrepid Experiment Rangers as they conduct real trial-and-error experiments (no CGI here!) with humour and a great sense of adventure. These episodes feature the science of heat and cold, and a solar cooker!
Produced by Al Jazeera Children's Channel and NHK. Provided by the NFB.
New filming techniques reveal behaviour that was previously impossible to capture in extreme locations. Fly amongst one of the largest migrations on Earth, as more than ten million fruit bats leave the Congo basin and converge in a few special trees in Zambia to feed. Sprint with the tiny, extraordinary-looking sengis as it escapes a predatory lizard. See thirty polar bears gather to feed on a bowhead whale carcass.
*6pm show plays Thu only from July 1–Sept 5. Produced by the BBC. Hi-Def Cinema from CineMuse.
Giraffe: The Impossible Animal
The giraffe is one of the most bizarre mammals on the planet. Its long neck is just one of its unique adaptations. In an ongoing battle with the acacia tree, the giraffe's main food, it has evolved strategies to overcome the plant's thorns and poisonous leaves.
A BBC/Animal Planet co-production. Hi-Def Cinema from Cinemuse.
Insects are the most diverse animal group on the planet. The key to their success is their unique ability to reshape themselves. Take a closer look at some key animals: Monarch butterflies, damselflies, grass cutter ants, Dawson’s bees and Bombardier beetles.

Go on a journey into outer space and satisfy your curiosity about science, technology and astronomy. Follow two neighbourhood kids, Sean and Sydney, as they both befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion, whose family members happen to be aliens from the planet Bortron 7! Together, they explore the solar system and the effects it has on the science of our planet, while learning about friendship and teamwork along the way.
*7pm show plays Thu only. Distributed by PBS, produced by Wind Dancer Films and created by Craig Bartlett.
