Innovation 150

The Power of Ideas Tour will travel to approximately 60 communities across Canada throughout 2017 stopping in every province and territory including Yellowknife, at Ecole St. Patrick High School. This event will be free and open to the public on Friday March 10, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM

The event includes:

  • Power of Idea Exhibition--An Inspiring exhibition from Perimeter Institute with Hands-on, mind-expanding activities that span a whole gymnasium. Youth and their families will have the opportunity to  explore the cosmic speed limit, the mysteries of dark matter, black holes and even more importantly, the power of ideas big and small!

  • Actual Maker Mobile--A moving maker space packed with exciting, cutting-edge technology that encourages youth to experiment and build with hands-on learning. The public will have a unique opportunity to learn how to create and prototype using design software, and watch their inventions come to life with 3D printers and laser cutters.
