Dissection Connection


Sunday, Sept 17 | 1pm-4pm


Contemporary Calgary

Calgary, AB

Hold onto your lab coats – the Open Studio Workshop at TELUS Spark Science Centre is evolving into Steven’s Lab! This will be a place for young people to embark on a journey of discovery, fuel their curiosity, unleash their creativity and get hands-on with real scientific tools… and it’s going on the road during Beakerhead!

Get hands-on with anatomy on Sunday, Sept 17 with TELUS Spark’s Steven’s Lab, where they will walk you through dissections with a lot of heart (sheep’s hearts, that is!).

Whether you’re a budding biologist or simply nostalgic for dissections in science class, TELUS Spark’s Steven’s Lab invites you to join them in the Workshop for an afternoon of scientific discovery! Put on a pair of gloves, grab a scalpel, and join in the fun at Dissection Connection!
