kubik has been awarded the contract to contribute to the final design, prototype, fabrication and installation of the exhibit components of Science North’s permanent exhibition entitled, THINK. Science North is a leader among science centres providing inspirational, educational and entertaining science experiences. This will be the third project kubik will participate in for Science North in the past five years.
Inspired by the Maker Movement, THINK (which stands for Tinker, Hack, Innovate, Network and Know) will combine science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) to encourage hands-on experimentation with real tools, materials and processes. Visitors will be inspired to innovate, build skills, and complete meaningful activities, projects and challenges. The exhibits will allow visitors to experiment and discover physics concepts, engineering processes, and new technologies. Larger exhibits will challenge visitors to design, build, and test their own solutions. The Prototype Lab will offer specialized equipment to create innovative projects and designs.
kubik was chosen due to their knowledge of leading edge trends in the industry including the development of interactive electro-mechanical exhibits, reconfigurable/flexible exhibit design and fabrication, along with their trusted relationship and longevity of experience in the field. Julie Moskalyk, Science Director for Science North says, “we are confident in our choice to have kubik on this important project for Science North. They are a proven partner for us with a practiced methodology, adapt at problem solving and can deliver the THINK project on time and on budget.”
