In The Community
The Ontario Science Centre considers community ties as integral to its vision and purpose – bringing the community into the Centre and taking the Centre out into the community. Not only do we throw open our doors annually on Community Day and throughout the year through community access programs, but we also immerse ourselves in the fabric of Toronto’s vibrant neighbourhoods by participating in popular festivals and cultural celebrations.
As the public centre for innovative thinking in science and technology, we consider it a responsibility to bring the wonders of science to people well beyond the boundaries of our building. In so doing, we blur the lines between art, culture and science, continually exploring the full reach of science.
The Science Centre also actively reaches out to young Canadian innovators, attracting submissions for its prestigious annual Weston Youth Innovation Award from remarkable youth who will help shape the future of our country.
