North Wing Science Galleries
The existing Hole Family and Allard Family galleries will be redesigned with content addressing science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics in an Alberta context.
This gallery will use sports as a way to provide a uniquely Edmonton perspective on human physiology. Guests can monitor their vital signs as they run, jump and compete in athletic challenges. The space will also include a laboratory where visitors will don a lab coat and conduct experiments to view bacteria, extract their own DNA and much more. Guests will experience what working in a laboratory is all about. They become the scientist.
There will also be an area for guests to use their hands and minds to experiment with the physical world in order to devise creative solutions to unique challenges. Guests of all ages will create, compete, tinker, test and build.
The hands-on interaction places the guest in control of their experience and optimizes the learning experience.
