The Ontario Science Centre is turning 50 this year. Throughout the year, the centre will be celebrating its history and planning their future with a lineup of new exhibitions, films and programming.
On January 24th, the Ontario Science Centre officially launched its birthday celebrations with Elizabeth Dowdeswell, the lieutenant-governor of Ontario, who is the centre’s honorary patron. The science centre revealed its plans for 2019 and launched their new social media campaign inviting for the public to share their moments, memorable experiences and photos.
"In 1969, the Province of Ontario had the foresight to pioneer a new type of cultural attraction — an interactive science museum," said Maurice Bitran, CEO and chief science officer at the Science Centre, in a news release. "This year, we are fortunate to celebrate 50 years of welcoming dreamers, thinkers and doers through our doors with the lieutenant-governor — an active champion of science and science communication — as our honorary patron. Together with Her Honour and our visitors, we not only appreciate the centre's past, we look to boldly create its future."
