Angry Birds Universe

Angry Birds Universe: The Art & Science Behind a Global Phenomenon!

Based on the incredibly popular Angry Birds games, this blockbuster exhibition features unprecedented interactivity in an extreme hands-on environment that is both physically and mentally stimulating.

Your students will embark on a wild adventure where science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics are taught in an immersive, engaging environment! 

Angry Birds Universe Special School Programs

Using the Alberta Curriculum as a guide, our educators have designed a variety of new and exciting programming to accompany the Angry Birds Universe exhibition. Students will explore key science concepts behind this worldwide phenomenon by delving into areas of physics, aerodynamics, bird adaptations and biodiversity. Programs have been created with all grade levels in mind. The Angry Birds Universe exhibition is included in Building Admission. Please see our Program Fees for more information and to book your field trip today. 


High Flying Physics (60 minutes, Grades 4-8)

Does your class have what it takes to build a fully functioning slingshot? How many Angry Birds will it take to knock down a fortress students build themselves? This physics based program will serve to complement your students’ Angry Birds Universe experience by exploring potential and kinetic energy, inertia vs. momentum, and more.

Amazing Adaptations (60 minutes, Grades 2-5, 90 mins Grades 6-9)

This program explores the world of biological adaptations, using the Angry Birds Universe exhibition to help students learn about and analyze the specialized features of many types of birds. Students will use hands-on investigative techniques with anatomical models to determine the functions of various physical adaptations of birds, and will design potential habitats that these birds could thrive in. Students will then uncover the advantages of structural adaptations among real Angry Birds, and learn the importance of biodiversity for all living things on our planet.

Angry Birds Universe (60 minutes, Grades 1-6)

In this station-based program presented right inside the Angry Birds Universe exhibition, students will complete a set of exciting challenges at each of the various hands-on exhibits. Students will investigate bird wingspan and egg shape at the Bamboo Forest, and even test their physics skills using gigantic slingshots, as well as explore several simple machines throughout the gallery. A fast-paced, educational and fun program awaits your students in the Angry Birds Universe exhibition at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton!
