A Real "Spark" Of Imagination!
November XIVth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Here in Calgary we have one of the twin jewels of scientific endeavours: The Telus Spark Centre! I of course being down here with family this weekend love the fact that the Telus World Of Science Edmonton is right by my abode. Both are superb places to take children of all ages who are interested in exploring fascinating & aspects of science, medicine, history, & many other topic areas. A valuable asset towards giving students a stimulating education & a fun family experience every day, but especially on weekends when they are not in a school classroom setting!
- The Brainasium is a great play to learn & play. It allows children an area to play & start to socialize with other kids. As a result, they are learning people skills!
- The Creative Kids Museum lets kids design their own inventions & build them. Plus children who like the idea of trying out their inventions can do so in a fun & in "real time" setting!
- The Earth & Sky Gallery is wonderful as it lets children see how weather patterns develop & make their own simulations so they can understand why weather affects the planet & vice versa!
