Please note that Science Theatre is closed all day Saturday, March 4 for a private event. We apologize for any inconvenience.
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.
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.
Produced by the BBC. 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.
