Discovering Science World

There’s a SkyTrain stop between Stadium China Town and Commercial Broadway. Near it on the shores of False Creek, is a giant, silver geodesic dome. The stop is called Main Street Science World. The giant, silver geodesic dome?

Well, that’s Science World.

A part of downtown Vancouver’s cityscape since the Expo 86, the Buckminster Fuller-inspired structure originally served as Expo Centre but it became the new home of the Arts, Sciences and Technology Centre after the Word’s Fair and voila! Science World was born. Now officially called Science World at Telus World of Science, the popular landmark has become a Vancouver institution and a favourite visitor destination. It’s easy to see why…

Science World’s interactive galleries include hourly live science shows, dynamic exhibits demonstrating the physics of water, light and sound, live animal and insect displays, puzzles, illusions and most excitingly, Western Canada’s largest giant screen films. On top of all this, a roster of visiting exhibits keeps the experience dynamic, fresh and always new.

Opening October 11, Light: Illuminating Science and Art offers unique perspectives on the various facets of light, exploring it through the lenses of the abstract, the scientific and the aesthetic. Featuring a number of works from local and international artists and scientists, this exhibition promises an interactive afternoon that you and the kids won’t want to miss.
