Beakerhead, Calgary’s Celebration of STEAM

In April 2022, TELUS Spark Science Centre merged with Beakerhead and joined forces to engage and inspire more people and communities with science, engineering, art and technology. With Beakerhead and Spark working together, the future of science in communities across Calgary looks brighter than ever before!

Beakerhead has facilitated 542,000 in-person encounters with science, technology, engineering, and math, through art and entertainment. This magic has been made with 665 local partners, 35,000 volunteer hours, and 1,442 collaborating presenters. And we’ve reached over 605 million people online. That’s a lot of numbers. But they all add up to awesome.
