Ever wonder how hockey players can skate so fast? Or what it takes to drive a Zamboni? Well, now you can find out at Telus Spark’s Hockey: Faster Than Ever, a traveling exhibition that explores the many intricacies of Canada’s favourite game. 

The exhibition (presented in partnership with Tim Hortons and Flying Fish) will be on display at Telus Spark from January 13 to March 12. During this time, visitors can experience a number of educational programs detailing the history of hockey, from its origins in ancient ball-and-stick games to the evolution of modern equipment. Hockey: Faster Than Ever also examines the physics behind the slapshot, the bodily functions involved in reaction time and what makes the greats great. Plus, visitors will have an opportunity to score a selfie on a real Zamboni. 

Pop in to learn about the science, engineering and love for what is often called “the world’s fastest game.” Entry to Hockey: Faster Than Ever is included with admission to Telus Spark.
