The Ontario Science Centre Inventorium

The Ontario Science Centre has launched something incredibly exciting for all those kids (and big kids) out there full of big ideas for the next best invention. The Inventorium is happening now at the Ontario Science Centre until May 6th 2018.

What is the Inventorium?

The Inventorium is a hands-on learning space for all the future inventors out there. The Inventorium mixes art and design with science, technology, engineering and match (STEM). People of all ages, especially kids, have the opportunity to combine, create and collaborate to get them thinking and help develop skills to be the next best inventor.
