Special Events and Activities

Science World is pleased to introduce a new way for K to 9 teachers and teacher candidates to learn and connect with others in the teaching community around a topic in Computational Thinking. These free two hour workshops will be held after-school at TELUS World of Science, between November and May, and pre-registration is required. We are excited to offer a number of these sessions en français!

Come by to enjoy an eclectic collection of photography, paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures and more, all created by the staff at Science World!

Between Vancouver island and Alaska, the mainland BC coast winds through a 250-mile wonderland of forested islands and inlets every bit as enchanting as the southern half, but still very much as nature created it, a wonderfully complex and delicate rainforest masterpiece ten thousand years in the making.

Have you ever dreamed of flying? Soar to new heights with Birdly®, an immersive virtual reality experience!

We are excited to be partnering with Beau Photo for the Capture Festival, an annual celebration of photography and lens-based art.

Science and art are often thought of as being polar opposites, when in fact, science parallels art in many ways—not just as a subject matter, but also as a source of inspiration.

Join high school students from across Metro Vancouver for an exciting evening of do-it-yourself crafts and zero-waste creations!

Connecting with our food and engaging with nature is vital to human health and happiness. Presented by GardenWorks and located in the Ken Spencer Science Park, our Balcony Garden exhibit shows how a little bit of creativity and garden know-how grows a long way!

As the number of people living in apartments and condos continues to rise, it becomes increasingly important to spark conversations about re-connecting with nature through gardening in the urban setting.

Till and McCulloch

Drs James Till and Ernest McCulloch were two Canadian scientists who pioneered the field of stem cell research with the discovery of a method to detect cells able to restore blood production in transplanted irradiated mice. This finding prompted the later identification of cells able to regenerate other tissues, including skin, muscle and brain. This has led to advances in research and treatment of cancer.
