Science World  Through science and nature, we ignite wonder and empower dreams.

#DidYouKnow that bumblebees have smelly feet? The scent of their feet help them to identify their own scent, and the scent of other bees. This helps them avoid flowers that have already been visited and mined for their nutrients!

Happy to be featuring this lovely shot of Dr. James Till, one of the forerunners of stem cell research, for #SWFeatureFriday! We hope you have a wonderful, sunny weekend! 📷: @alexbrvan

Did you know that 50% of consumer plastics are designed to be used only once? Eliminating single-use plastics, both from design chains to our consumer habits is a critical first step to #BeatPlasticPollution. Let's work together to protect the planet! #WorldEnvironmentDay 📷: @m.arley_a

A few weeks ago, we hosted our third annual #VanScienceSocial and what a day it was! We brought together a group of Vancouver's top social media influencers and treated them to a day of science and learning, in hopes that they'll share what they've learned with their own audiences. Highlights included, flying over the Manhattan skyline with #Birdly, an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the dome, a peek inside our new feature exhibition, #ScienceOfPixarSW, and a special keynote presentation from Pixar's own, Ted Mathot! If that wasn't enough, we even let our guests control the lights on the dome using #OhYVR. Thanks to all of our guests for making this event such a success. We can't wait to host again next year. Here's to science!!

Happy Friday! 📷: @awejunkie #SWFeatureFriday
