Where can you make a simple circuit, create a critter, spin a giant web and take in local history by way of a tree trunk? The Ontario Science Centre, of course!
On July 19, to celebrate Ontario 150, the Science Centre officially opened Inventorium, a new hands-on learning space, and unveiled The Maple Leaf Forever Tree, an eight-foot, historically-significant hand-carved wood sculpture that pays tribute to Toronto's vibrant history.
"There are few things more powerful than creating something yourself – especially when it's a product of your own imagination," said Maurice Bitran, Ph.D., CEO, Ontario Science Centre. "These new visitor experiences showcase what's possible when we combine experimentation, collaboration and critical thinking. Inventorium encourages visitors to flex their creative muscles and bring their ideas to life. And The Maple Leaf Forever Tree illustrates the beauty achievable when taking a collective approach to a creative challenge."Full Media Release
