      Edmonton AM celebrated the best of the city's nerd culture with a special live broadcast at the Telus World of Science Edmonton. 

      Host Mark Connolly and the morning crew left the studio behind for a detour to the city's northside Thursday morning. 

      And it was a geek's paradise. 

      Watch the video below for some of the highlights:

      From comic books to gaming, nerds of all stripes were out in full force for the special edition of Mark About Town.

      More than 100 people came out to enjoy the free coffee, a special early-morning IMAX screening, and a chance to win some fabulous prizes from the Telus World of Science, Transcend Coffee and Variant Edition Comics.

      A big thank you from the Edmonton AM crew to everyone who made the morning possible.
