Where can you make a simple circuit, create a critter, spin a giant web and take in local history by way of a tree trunk? The Ontario Science Centre, of course! On July 19, to celebrate Ontario 150, the Science Centre officially opened Inventorium, a new hands-on learning space, and unveiled The Maple Leaf Forever Tree, an eight-foot, historically-significant hand-carved wood sculpture that pays tribute to Toronto's vibrant history.

Created to celebrate Ontario's sesquicentennial, Inventorium is a dynamic, fun, free-choice learning space for the whole family. Visitors are invited to roll up their sleeves and put their creativity to the test through a variety of hands-on, interactive experiences that continually change and evolve. From building a kinetic sculpture to designing conversation-starting coasters, and from participating in research to making intricate drawings under a stereoscopic microscope, Inventorium offers something for the innovator in everyone.
