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.

I took my 5 year old for a day at Telus Spark and was very disappointed. School tours were totally out of control, pushing little ones, throwing balls and shoes and generally lacking supervision. Perhaps the chaperones/ parent volunteers didn't realize their role was NOT...More

This was very well put on. The wife is a huge Trekkie and she had a blast. Wish we would have known about this sooner so we could have come here a few more times.

Is this attraction made for children? Is there displays that adults would enjoy or more designed for children? Would an adult couple enjoy this or be bored as a lot of the pictures are reviews are all about kids. Thank you to anyone who answers
