Contest: You could win a one year membership to Science World for your entire family

Enter for your chance to win 1 of 2 annual family memberships to Science World (valued at $242 each) to explore exhibitions - like James Cameron: CHALLENGING THE DEEP - and more throughout the year
James Cameron in the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER.

Film buffs and deep sea explorers won’t want to miss the launch of a travelling exhibition that’s making its debut in Vancouver this summer! 

Originally produced by the Australian National Maritime Museum in association with the Avatar Alliance Foundation, James Cameron: CHALLENGING THE DEEP, supported by Coca-Cola Canada, is a feature exhibition with acclaimed Canadian filmmaker James Cameron (of Titanic and Avatar fame) at the helm. 

Opening at Science World on June 23, the immersive experience offers a deep dive into Cameron’s achievements in deep ocean science, technology and exploration. As visitors explore the exhibition, they will discover how the underwater recording, lighting, communication and diving technologies pioneered by Cameron impacted the practices of both filmmaking and ocean exploration.

Using a number of interactive elements and hands-on activities, CHALLENGING THE DEEP will make you feel as if you are joining Cameron on his underwater adventures into the depths of the ocean.

The exhibition recreates deep-sea environments using cinema-scale projection, allowing visitors to watch as Cameron makes his record-breaking dives to the bottom of the ocean in the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER – the submersible vessel he designed and built in Sydney, Australia — as well as get a chilling up-close look at the shipwreck of the RMS Titanic.

The equipment and technology used in Cameron’s deep ocean expeditions, such as the specially-engineered diving helmet from The Abyss, will also be on display. Visitors can discover the replica pilot sphere from the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, along with artifacts from the shipwrecks of the RMS Titanic and the German battleship Bismarck, throughout the exhibition. 

CHALLENGING THE DEEP also includes original film props and costumes from throughout Cameron’s filmography, including the iconic Heart of the Ocean diamond necklace featured in Titanic, and various specimens from Cameron’s personal collection. 

James Cameon: CHALLENGING THE DEEP opens at Science World on June 23, 2023 and will run throughout the year until January 1, 2024. Book your tickets now at
