Summer at Spark Experience Lineup
PROGRAM RUNS: June 29 – September 2, 2019

WonderMaze - all day, Brainasium

Come wonder, come all and be aMAZEd this summer by letting your kids (or inner kids) lead you through the twists and turns of discovery, where surprises linger around every corner and all paths lead to delight.

Junkyard Playground - Daily at 11:00am – 4:00pm in the Brainasium

Junkyard playground is a kid-created world where kids can build, and rebuild their surroundings with real tools, crafting an environment that is as limitless as their imaginations. It might look a little disorganized – or even a little risky – but this ecosystem of limitless possibilities is essential for growing brains!

Junkyard Playground is just for kids, but caretakers can stay close by just in case. Our trained play facilitators will be in the Junkyard Playground to keep the space safe, but most importantly, to inspire new types of play.
Kids must be wearing closed-toed shoes to enter the Junkyard Playground.

Adult Oasis – all day, Brainasium

Take a break that’s better than a KitKat in the Adult Oasis where you can enjoy the sun, and maybe a few pages of a good book, while your kids get to work building their own fun in the Junkyard Playground.

Daily Program – Splatter at Spark- Brainasium - 10-11am (timing TBD)
Spark has installed a huge blank canvas that is begging for some colour! Every day from [insert time] to [insert time] this paint wall will be open to your imaginations and closed to typical ideas of what painting should look like. Using spray bottles and a squirt of creativity, kids (and adults) are invited to explore this artistic medium and bring some life to this otherwise dull design.

Program notes:
• Weather dependent- on raining days it is likely this won’t run, possibly may move inside.

Daily Program – Big Bites of Science - twice daily - Brainasium

Houston we have liquid nitrogen! It wouldn’t be Summer at Spark without some great big science experiments so let’s launch some bottle rockets, gaze at some geysers and make the elephants some much-needed toothpaste!

Hive Five - every Saturday

Meet Spark’s newest worker bees (literally)! Every Saturday during Summer at Spark Amber, from Mob Honey, will be leading tours of Spark’s new bee hives!

Program Notes:
• Two tours will be offered per day
• Tours will be 30 minutes
• 12 guests per tour
• 1pm-2pm- first tour ; 2pm- 3pm- second tour
• Guest must be older than 5 and have eaten in advance (risk of fainting)
• Tours will be hands on with the hive frames and cover basic bee knowledge.

Meet Amber, The Anaphylactic Bee Keeper

From 3-4 pm stop by the atrium to meet Amber and ask her questions about all things bees like: “what’s so cool about bees” and “why is honey so good”?

Parks Canada Mountain WIT - every Wednesday in the Inspiration Stage

Parks Canada will be back for another summer! They’ll be bringing in two new interactive shows to launch visitors into an exciting adventure.
