“Magic is simple science waiting to be discovered!” – TELUS Spark. Here’s how to explore the family friendly activities at the TELUS Spark Science Centre in Calgary with your family and friends!
As quickly as they could they gathered up their safety glasses and workers gloves and started to “learn with their hands” in the Open Studio. A space specifically designed to let children design and build skills with technology, real tools, and everyday materials, my kids were having fun without realizing that they were learning.
And this would be our first mistake. Where our perception of our experience would be way different than our reality. For example, we planned to stay for three hours but were there for six! With over 200 hands-on experiences designed to engage kids with science, and a lot of entertaining interludes along the way (like a toilet fountain – ewe!) there was more to explore than time allowed.
