TELUS World of Science, Vancouver is a science centre run by a non-profit organization in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is located at the end of False Creek, and features many permanent interactive exhibits and displays, as well as areas with varying topics throughout the years.
The building's former name was Science World, still the name of the organization. The building's name change to the TELUS World of Science became official on July 20, 2005 following a $9-million donation to the museum from TELUS. The official name of the science centre was subsequently changed to "TELUS World of Science", although it is still routinely referred to as "Science World" by the public.
In 1977, Barbara Brink ran mobile hands-on exhibits known as the Extended I around the Lower Mainland. Later, the temporary Arts, Sciences & Technology Centre opened on January 15, 1982 attracting over 600,000 visitors. Another 400,000 benefited from the centre’s outreach programs, which were delivered around the province.
