It all started with a spark.
Our organization began in 1967 promoting curiosity, innovation and collaboration, and encouraging children and youth to pursue higher education and careers in science and technology.
In 2011, we opened the doors to our reimagined science centre - a place that's, in fact, much more than a science centre. Our space is a place to explore and get your hands on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).
Our visual identity is an important component of our brand. Details on the use of the TELUS Spark logo and other assets can be found in our brand toolkit.
We are a role model and force for innovation that drives positive change.
A community transformed by a culture of curiosity, risk-taking and problem solving.
Collaboration: We believe that encouraging debate and dialogue, embracing diverse perspectives, and that partnership with our communities results in better ideas and outcomes.
Curiosity: We are always wondering, always questioning, always seeking to learn.
Courage: We believe in innovative thinking and taking risks. We embrace change. Our courage to fail gives us the confidence to succeed.
Commitment: We're deeply passionate about our mission and pursue it in everything we do...and in how we do it.
