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!
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.
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!
