Overview

TELUS Spark is a non-profit organization with a mission to become a role model and force for social change. It takes a core set of skills to create something new, whether it's a ground breaking discovery or a toy robot. TELUS Spark is a place to build these skills by using your imagination to see beyond what exists, your curiosity to formulate a question and persistence and problem-solving skills to keep going, despite surprises and mistakes, to find the confidence in yourself to uncover the answers.

Love adult night! This is a great time to pay attention to the displays and try all the stuff you want to try when you bring the kids. The new cafe is great too! Also the new cafeteria is awesome!
