Building a Science Centre for the North

Drawing inspiration from the aurora, this project allows TELUS World of Science to ‘rise above’ with increased capacity in new exhibition spaces and re-energized programs with a Northern focus on science, engineering, technology, math and art.


Transforming lives and inspiring discovery

The $40 million project is underway and your support is needed as we build a science centre that will have a lasting impact on the lives in our community. We will tackle new science that will define Edmonton in the 21st century. The emphasis on Northern science, engineering and technology will enhance our community and forever change the many lives we touch.

As our community grows and more families and schools turn to us as a major contributor to education and the Edmonton area, we need to embrace this by providing a world-class experience large enough to accommodate the increasing demand.

The North Star Dome

The domed theatre will be transformed into a 21st-century digital visualization theatre, connecting scientific research with computer visualization to help us understand how the universe works.

Portal to the Arctic

This new gallery will root our guests in our unique Edmonton and Alberta experience by engaging them in dynamic hands-on activities on issues facing the circumpolar north, including climate change, resource development and cultural challenges.

North Wing Science Galleries

The existing Hole Family and Allard Family galleries will be reimagined to provide science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an Alberta context.

Cardinal Building Science Galleries

Our two iconic galleries will be reborn to create an exciting new space gallery and a massive early childhood learning centre alongside a new Nature Exchange.

TWOSE is poised to tackle new science that will define Edmonton in the 21st century. This is not incremental change – this is a bold, unique vision of what a science centre can be. It will resonate with the community, reflecting our values as a leader in education and prosperity. It will inspire, educate, and transform!
