Featured Exhibitions

A field trip to the Ontario Science Centre is an opportunity for students to formulate questions, explore and communicate ideas, create and assess solutions and challenge themselves to consider a world of new possibilities. Bring your class to explore these special exhibitions:

 Wild Weather

Until January 8, 2017

Fly through the eye of a hurricane, create a mini-tornado and dance up a storm as the weather around you responds to your movements. Wild Weather lets students experience thunderstorms, tornadoes, extreme heat and winter storms up close through hands-on exhibits, multi-player challenges and interactive experiences. This new exhibition also explores the effects of climate change on severe weather around the globe and reveals how scientists are working to help mitigate its impact on communities, infrastructure and lives.

Wild Weather

 Wild Weather is developed and produced by Science North in partnership with the Ontario Science Centre.

 Knowledge Partner: Western University, Engineering. Media Partner: Toronto Star. Supported by: RWDI  Consulting  Engineers and Scientists.

Biomechanics The Machine Inside

Opens February 8, 2017

Shrimp that can break through glass? Spider webs that are stronger than steel? Sharks that use their snouts to sense the electrical impulses of their prey? This new exhibition reveals the incredible ingenuity behind evolution and adaptation through real specimens, lifelike models and interactive experiences. Find out why all living things —including humans— are machines built to survive, move and discover. Compare the similarities between muscles and motors, legs and springs, or claws and clamps to explore the ways marvels of natural engineering have inspired ingenious man-made inventions.
