The AstraZeneca Human Edge

The AstraZeneca Human Edge logo



An exhibit hall that explores all the wonders and possibilities of the human body.

Over 80 exhibits covering five dynamic themes:

     In the Beginning
     Mind and Body Limits
     Personal Limits
     Pushing Past the Limits
     Outer Limits 

Plunge into the mind of a freediver to explore the respiratory system, put yourself in the role of a climber on the climbing wall, and test your own personal limits as you run, row and dance your way through The AstraZeneca Human Edge. Discover stories of athletes, adventure seekers, extreme sports enthusiasts and others who have broken through barriers of what was once thought humanly possible.

The AstraZeneca Human Edge is an exhibit hall created by the Ontario Science Centre. We collaborated extensively with leading experts from a wide range of fields, including neuroscience, physiology, bio-mechanics and sports medicine to develop over 80 active and immersive experiences where visitors can learn about their own amazing bodies.
