AAA Editor Notes

TELUS World of Science—Edmonton is at 142nd St. and 111th Ave. Five galleries house exhibits that explain and explore science and technology. Space Place focuses on space exploration and life on a space station. The Body Fantastic includes large-scale 3-D models of body parts and the aptly named Gallery of the Gross. The Syncrude Environment Gallery features Science on a Sphere, a 1.8-metre (6-ft.) diameter globe staff scientists use to enhance presentations about the earth's environment. Discoveryland is a hands-on area designed for children ages 2 through 8. The Science Garage is the center’s newest permanent gallery, encouraging visitors to get hands and minds busy with science and engineering. In the Maker Space, visitors use random materials to create, build and experiment, aided by staff scientists, and there are daily activities and challenges. In addition you'll enjoy live science demonstrations, an outdoor observatory equipped with telescopes, an IMAX theater and planetarium shows presented in the Margaret Zeidler Star Theatre planetarium. On weekends, you can program your own robot in the Robotics Lab. Food is available.
