The Calgary Science Centre is inserting a “giant dose of creativity” to their facility. They are making plans to change the dome theatre, galleries, atrium as well as create a “Space Bar and Astronaut Ice Cream” stand and build a collection of unusual gadgets for the staff to wear “to enhance the visitor touch point”.

“We are starting to raise the $21 million we will need as we speak. We have applied for $14 million in support from civic, municipal and provincial infrastructure grant programs. We hope to raise another $7 million from the community through a campaign called the Good Chemistry campaign.” - Mary Anne Moser, CEO , TELUS Spark.

TELUS Spark plans to keep maintaining their current educational and science-based activities while working on the centre’s facelift.
