Science Theatre shows are free with your Science World at TELUS World of Science general admission.

How Earth Made Us: Deep Earth
Explore the relationship between the deep Earth and the development of human civilization. The exploration reveals that throughout history our ancestors were strangely drawn to fault lines; areas which connect the surface with the deep interior of the planet. These fault lines gave access to important resources, but also brought with them great danger.

Natural Curiosities: Remarkable Regeneration
Some animals can do the seemingly impossible. Salamanders can regenerate entire legs and tails to replace ones they’ve lost, while deer shed their massive antlers and re-grow them from a few remaining cells each year. How do these animals regenerate entire body parts and why is it not possible for all animals to do the same?
