Time to build something!
Cartonville! This activity offered from March 2 to 11, 2019
was created specially to appeal to kids. Parents and their little
ones will have to use their ingenuity to help develop a city using
only cardboard, tape and their imagination! What would you like to
build? A house? A character? A tree? A train? A dog? It’s up to
you to decide what you will contribute to this city! Participants
visiting Cartonville can also add colour to their creations!
Contribute to the construction of
NATURE, inspired TECHNO
Visit the new temporary
NATURE, Inspired TECHNO: Biomimicry and Transport and
explore how nature inspires the creation of innovative
technologies used in transportation. Interactive elements lead to
a number of discoveries, like the fact that the squid’s propulsion
system inspired the hydrojet, or that smart cars use a detection
system similar to that of the locust.
Test out the
prototype of the Driving with Nature game
The goal of the game is simple: draw
inspiration from nature and modify your vehicle to improve its
performance and beat the evil D. Tritus. Race across 5 Canadian
regions to seek out your enemy as you learn more about biomimicry.
Come play and share your experience!
By offering all of these activities,
the Museum is on a mission to test out the creativity of its
visitors and ignite a spark of ingenuity!
