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!

2015: October 23, November 13

Opening the Door

Considering a career in science, technology, engineering or math? Want to learn more about different career options that are available to you? Then you're in luck! Opening the Door connects high school students to people across BC who are keen on sharing their knowledge and expertise with young people interested in exploring exciting careers in science and tech.

This month, meet with mentors who have careers in animal science, then stay and explore our feature exhibition, Animal Inside Out.

Opening the Door is a networking opportunity that encourages students to keep the door to science open by introducing them to various career paths. Grade 10–12 students will have the opportunity to introduce themselves to a variety of industry professionals and ask questions about their educational background, job, how they entered their field and other career-related information.
