The Dome at Home

Science World's doors are currently closed but the experimentation, curiosity and fun can continue right in your living room.

We can't wait to welcome you back to Science World when circumstances allow it but in the meantime we'll be here to ignite wonder and curiosity from our dome to your home.

As we think of everyone in Vancouver and around the world in this exceptional time, we invite you to experience Science World online by sharing some of our favourite resources and at-home activities.

Sign up to our newsletter and get new activities straight into your inbox.

At-Home Science Activities

Big Science for Little Hands at Home

When you do science with your children, you can share their sense of wonder about the natural world. These free activities are meant to serve as a starting point for early-childhood scientific exploration. We've put together several that are available to download and easy to do at home!


While our science facilitators are home, they continue to share their passion for discovering the world around them. Watch the scientific demonstrations you know and love, using everyday items you can find in your home. Then, try it yourself! Share your own version of your favourite activity on social media using #ShowUsYourScience.


Is time travel really possible? What would it take to regenerate the world's diminishing rainforests? Which predictions from the 1980s turned out to be right? And what is up with earwax?

Fieldnotes is where we delve into curious topics you've always wanted to know more about.
