Innovation150

EN FRANÇAIS : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpIpifQChkY

Innovation150 is an interactive, year-long celebration of Canadian innovation that will offer cutting-edge opportunities for youth, families, and communities across the country to experience innovation first-hand. As a Signature Initiative of the Government of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations, Innovation150 will share Canadian innovations of the past and focus on the innovations that will drive our future.

Five of Canada’s leading science outreach organizations have partnered to bring Innovation150 to life. Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Actua, the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Canada Science & Technology Museums Corporation, and the Canadian Association of Science Centres, along with its members, will bring Innovation150 exhibits and programming to locations across the country. The program starts in Waterloo Region in October 2016 and then travels coast to coast to coast throughout 2017.
