AAA Editor Notes

Science World at TELUS World of Science, 1455 Quebec St., is housed in a geodesic dome and features hands-on exhibits and demonstrations that explain scientific phenomena. Water, air and motion are some of the physical sciences explored in the Eureka! Gallery. The Kidspace Gallery features activities involving water, light, color and movement for children ages 1 through 6. Live, zany science demonstrations with audience participation take place daily in the Peter Brown Family Centre Stage. Watch films in the OMNIMAX Theatre, which projects nature and science films onto a dome screen that's 5 stories high and 27 metres (88 ft.) in diameter; or take a seat in the high-definition Science Theatre, which offers films and live shows. Human performance and nature are the subjects of additional galleries. Learn about sustainable communities in Our World: BMO Sustainability Gallery, explore human life sciences in BodyWorks and discover the wonders of nature in Search: Sara Stern Gallery. Science World also has two outdoor galleries. In the Ken Spencer Science Park, you can plant seeds and gather eggs from chickens. On the TD Environmental Trail, discover exhibits about environmental issues on a hike around the building. Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
