In this travelling science expo from Perimeter Institute and Actua, young Canadians and their families explore the incredible ability of the human mind to question, make, and innovate.
Power of Ideas Exhibition:
This inspiring exhibition from Perimeter Institute enables youth and their families to take a hands-on approach to learning the process of science. From delving into two of the world’s largest science experiments to exploring changing ideas about our universe, this immersive experience fosters curiosity and a better understanding of how we investigate our world.
Travelling to schools and science centres across the country, it also includes an interactive presentation for youth that draws on stories of Canada’s past and inspires the innovator in all of us.
Maker Mobile Innovation Stations:
Actua’s Maker Mobile is a moving maker space packed with exciting, cutting-edge technology that encourages participants to experiment and build with hands-on learning.
Actua’s Maker Mobile Innovation Stations are designed to give participants a first-hand look at the tools and technologies used by innovators and people who want to use STEM to make the world a better place. The stations are designed to be self-guided by participants promoting curiosity, risk-taking, critical thinking and problem solving.
We are a not-for-profit initiative of Dalhousie University that provides youth in Atlantic Canada with fun, educational, and inspiring experiences in science, engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM).
