The Saskatchewan Science Center is a non-profit, non-governmental educational facility located in Regina. In 1978, a group of visionary women, members of the Junior Service Association, recognized the urgent need for greater public awareness and understanding of science and technology.

To commemorate this anniversary and in recognition of Discovery Week, the Science Center will host events that encourage nostalgia through activities and programs from the archives. The public is encouraged to get involved by visiting the Saskatchewan Science Center during its regular business hours or at Adult Science Night on April 25.

Throughout the week there is a special, limited screening of the IMAX film The Dream is Alive. It was the first documentary to be screened at the theater when it opened in April 1991. This documentary takes viewers on an exciting journey across Earth as it chronicles humanity's achievements in space exploration.

“Many of us have witnessed that expansive wonder since our first encounter with the magic of science since we burst onto the scene in 1989,” said Sandy Baumgartner, CEO of the Saskatchewan Science Centre.

“Discovery Week is an opportunity for all Saskatchewan residents to share some nostalgia, celebrate our roots and dive into a week full of science, smiles and maybe some crazy experiences!”

The Government of Saskatchewan provides $620,000 annually to support the operating costs of the Saskatchewan Science Centre.
