What’s Coming?

Power of Ideas National Tour

Every great innovation starts with an idea. In this traveling science expo, young Canadians explore the incredible ability of the human mind to question, make, and innovate. The tour includes hands-on science exhibits and a mobile makerspace coming to 80 communities across the country.

Innovation150 Festivals

Hosted in part by Canada’s leading science centres, these large-scale festivals combine and build on other Innovation150 travelling opportunities to create massive, interactive showcases of Canadian innovation in major cities. 

The Exhibition

Small is the next big thing, and Canada is at the forefront. This fully interactive, bilingual exhibition explores how researchers are taming the fascinating world of atoms, and shares the emerging quantum technologies that are shaping our future.
