Unbelievable variety of interactive areas and exhibits, kids and adults. There were 4 adults and 3 children from 7 to 12. No one got bored a second! Don't pass this up!!

I like the variety of things kids can do. Since it is a Science centre is all about trial and error. how to improve things they build.

We have 2 kids, aged 1 and 4. We went the first time when my eldest was 2. We had such a good time that day we used our entry fees from that day towards a season's pass! With the season's pass we don't feel the obligation to try and see everything every time we go, so it's a new... More

We went there along with our 5 yr old son. We saw Dinosaur show (wow that was amazing). The activities were quite interactive and staff was very supportive. All the exhibitions were awesome. Before closing, they had chicken dance which my son enjoyed the most.

We visited with 4 children aged 8-12. The kids had lots of fun and kept engaged for the full 4 hours be visited for. It seems as though the areas are either great or boring - there was not much middle ground. The areas that are hands on are great. The kids are experiencing a lot of learning on their... More

We were REALLY impressed with the appearance of the facility, the quality and the variety of engaging activities, (both individual or team), There was lots to do that kept you challenged both physically and mentally. The 7-10 yr olds really enjoyed the 60 second challenges led by the very enthusiastic staff. Definitely a hit and "a must return to" place.

The only good thing about the new Telus Spark is the beautiful exterior. We absolutely loved going to the old science centre, there were always so many things to see and do. The new one costs twice as much and I find has very little value for money unless you have a toddler. Nothing to do for older kids. You... More

The science centre covers a very limited range of scientific issues. Those which are covered are represented very superficially and too often serve as little more than the equivalent of toys for very young children. A number of interesting "factoids" can be picked up by the various age groups visiting the centre but, overall, it does not cover some key... More

This is not the usual science centre where you find a van de graff generator and lots of flashing lights. This is a place where kids(and adults) do interact with exhibits and in doing so to learn, to experiment, and to learn from the interaction with the exhibits. The current dinosaur exhibit is very cool as you get to make... More
