The TAG Team is Science World's Teen Advisory Group. It organizes SWEET (Science World Extravagant Evening for Teens) events for teens at TELUS World of Science. These events take place every other month on a Friday and they are planned and run by the TAG Team. Each month, the group meets with Science World's Manager of Teen Programs to come up with cool event themes, fun programs and activities that teens are actually interested in. They even help to promote the events by creating print promotions and using social media.
