The Aurora Project is a bold and unique vision of what a science centre should be, with the emphasis on Northern science, engineering, and technology

Our Project Goals

TELUS World of Science – Edmonton is a beloved, iconic part of the city which has led the science conversation in our region for over three decades. The Aurora Project will modernize a number of the facility’s exhibits ensuring that it remains on the forefront of advances in STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.  The project will also see the facility expand by 20,000 sq. ft. to incorporate a new Arctic Gallery which will provoke conversations around the scientific and cultural challenges facing Canada’s North.

The Aurora Project will meet the needs of the growing number of TELUS World of Science – Edmonton visitors by updating exhibit content, providing access to emerging technologies, and igniting dialogue around the most critical scientific issues facing our region. With your help this project will:
INVEST – in the imagination of our children.
BUILD – a science program to fuel innovation in our region.
INSPIRE – our community by elevating the scientific conversation.

The $40 million project is underway with $12 million in capital funds from the City of Edmonton, $3.35 million from the Government of Canada, and over $1 million in philanthropic support. Your support is needed. Join us as we bring the Aurora Project to life.
