Teen Events

Looking to get out of the house and hang out with other high school students? Ever wanted to explore our science centre with your friends and without the adults and little kids around? Here's your chance. 

Drop by Science World at TELUS World of Science for one of our events that are perfect for a young adult audience. From free lectures to SWEET (Science World Extravagant Evenings for Teens) events, there's always something going on that you shouldn't miss.

We host five SWEET events each school year. Mark these dates on your calendar!
