Why Now?

Currently, the science centre has the smallest footprint out of all major science centre’s in Canada, yet we have more annual guests for our size than any other. Since 2016, our attendance numbers have grown by 29% and with this growth comes a demand for more space and programming. We grow to meet the needs of your community.

Why Aurora?

From the moment you walk in the doors, we want you to explore, create, and innovate with your kids, grandkids, or friends. The Aurora Project is redefining what your science centre can be. By updating old galleries and creating new experiences, we continue to inspire the limitless potential of our children and future generations to come.


We have reached the final phase of The Aurora Project and broke ground on the expansion of the science centre in Summer 2020.

You can experience your new science centre in Spring 2022. It will feature an Arctic exhibition, a renovated Health Zone, and expanded visitor amenities and outdoor spaces. We cannot wait for you to explore with us.

How Can You Support the Aurora Project?

Previous donors to The Aurora Project have helped Alexandra discover her love of science and forever changed the lives of Jill’s students through the new spaces and programs at the science centre. They have supported families like Stephanie’s that have the space to explore and grow every week and inspired the next generation of innovators.

Your donation will change lives and inspire many more families. You are investing in the future innovators of your community.

‍Your gift allows for children to have that moment of awe that forever changes their lives and opens up a whole new world to explore and grow. We continue to inspire generations of astronauts, innovators, and big dreamers – with your help we will continue to engage Albertan’s hearts and minds in science.

You can donate online now, or by contacting Erin Mulcair, Campaign Manager, at 780-452-9100 ext. 2379. Please consider a monthly donation or a one-time gift, every donation big and small makes a difference.
