Thank You TELUS Spark!
The last couple of weeks were very exciting for TECTERRA. We had the opportunity to partake in two events held at the TELUS Spark Science Centre in Calgary.
On November 13, we participated in TELUS Spark’s Adults Only Night – Destination Mars. The event was a huge success and drew in just under 800 visitors!
The goal of the evening was to teach people more about the Red Planet and the importance of developing technology to explore the mysterious land. So, we brought along some of the state-of-the-art equipment from the TECTERRA Geomatics Lab that could be used to do just that – our ground penetrating radar systems and autonomous mobile robots, Seekur and Seekur Junior. They were a huge hit!
Also, in celebration of GIS Day on November 19, the Alberta Geomatics Group, Calgary Regional Partnership, and SAIT Polytechnic hosted a fun and educational evening event to celebrate geomatics at TELUS Spark. TECTERRA proudly sponsored the event.
More than 400 guests attended the event. As a sponsor, we had the opportunity to mingle and network with industry and non-industry guests, as well as enjoy some great exhibits, which included a giant map that received plenty of interest from children and adults alike.
TECTERRA would like to extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who helped with the planning and execution of these fabulous events. Our special thanks to TELUS Spark for being a great host!
