A new experience launched at Telus Spark over the summer. Every Second is the first show at the science centre’s new Digital Immersion Gallery, a 6,000 square-foot space created by Telus Spark and Supply And Demand Studio. Much like a walk-through movie, the viewer is taken on an immersive journey about life’s moments and time. The show takes about 15 minutes to walk through and is included with $26 adult admission to the science centre ($19 for kids). Admission to Telus Spark is timed and should be purchased online beforehand.
