The Government of Alberta’s commitment to investing $12 million into the Aurora Project will help the TELUS World of Science’s expansion plan move forward.
This phase of the Aurora Project includes new and renewed areas that will create more opportunities for visitors to imagine and have fun. Visitors will be able to explore the culture and development of Canada’s arctic and polar region. A new health gallery will focus on the human body, how it performs, reacts and functions.
“This is an exciting venture for the TELUS World of Science in Edmonton and I am pleased that the Government of Alberta is supporting its expansion. Our investment in the Aurora Project helps ensure more Albertans have access to a state-of-the-art facility where learning and entertainment opportunities will inspire our children and visitors for generations to come. Infrastructure investments like the Aurora project also provide significant benefits to our local economy and support much needed jobs for Alberta workers.” Prasad Panda, Minister of Infrastructure
