From October 14-31, take risks and be curious during SHOCKTOBER at TELUS Spark!
Enjoy frightfully fun activities for the entire family as you explore the spooky science behind Halloween. You might be shocked by what you learn! Plus, Monster Mash-Up is back on October 28 and 29 for the final weekend of SHOCKTOBER celebrations.
Brew up a colourful potion, pour it out and watch it slide down our Halloween sculpture in a fascinating pattern. Be amazed as the colours of your potion mix with others to create something awesome and beautiful. Watch out - brewing potions can be a messy adventure!
- Daily in the Atrium
It’s time to get messy at TELUS Spark. We’ve invented a creature that dumps gooey, slimy, sticky stuff onto you! Are you brave enough to stand under the mysterious mess? Grab one of our umbrellas and get your photo taken as you bravely dodge the goop!

Host Parasite Interaction Group
There is a creature whose life is interwoven with those of humans, our pets, as well as domestic livestock. These same creatures are inside our food and water! What are we talking about, you ask? Parasites! Parasites play a key role in the function and stability of natural ecosystems, and thus the conservation and sustainability of wildlife populations. Don’t be afraid, be curious and discover the unknown world of parasites.
