Nearly 2,000 square metres of extra space is being added to one of Alberta’s most popular attractions.
Construction on The Aurora Project at TELUS World of Science began in October, which will mean room for new exhibits.
“These new spaces will dramatically change the way we’re able to engage Albertans’ hearts and minds in science because the Aurora Project will redefine our science centre,” said Alan Nursall, president and CEO of TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.
Premier Rachel Notley was on hand to update the project.
“This place inspires wonder in our kids and it shows them the incredible things people can do when we understand the world around us,” she said.
The premier also announced the province will contribute $12 million over three years, money already ear-marked for the project in the 2018 budget.
