Teens: Creative Minds opens at Bruce County Museum

Teens: Creative Minds now at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) explores the brains of young people and shines a light on their creative drive by showcasing the work of 11 teenagers from across Canada who over the last 100 years have taken the path of innovation with the aim of changing the world.

Exhibit officially opens

The exhibit opening on May 19th, was led by teen Corbin Glover and has been designed for visitors to;

  • HAVE FUN experimenting with interactive devices to:
    • Test and compare prototypes and innovations
    • Experiment with physical principles that support innovation
    • Participate in manual and digital games
  • UNDERSTAND what happens in the teenage brain
  • LEARN how failure is also a factor in success

“This travelling exhibit from Musée Nature Sciences (Sherbrooke, QC) is a one-of-a-kind experience and was produced by the J. Armand Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity with the collaboration of the Université de Sherbrooke,” said Cathy McGirr, Museum’s Executive Director.  “It has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation.”

There were also exhibits led by teens inside and outside the Museum.  Outside the Kinetic Knights demonstrated their skill at robotics while inside young people were actively involved in creating a ‘working hand’.
