Inspiring Minds 

The Ontario Science Centre's mission is to inspire passion for the human adventure of discovery. We have been inspiring the minds of people of all ages for decades. This happens in a wide variety of ways, from the easily recognizable to the quite subtle. Here is a short overview of some of the main programs and experiences created specifically to inspire minds. 

  • Interactions with hosts: Our white-coated hosts patrol the floor, ready to unveil thought-provoking demonstrations, regular workshops, and overall make your trip to the Science Centre as rewarding and memorable as possible.
  • Science School: Our Science School invites students to gain University Preparation science credits during an enriched semester inside the Ontario Science Centre. http://www.ontariosciencecentre.ca/oscschool
  • School Trips: We are a one-of-a-kind destination for school trips. A wide range of programming opens up the minds of young pupils. 
  • KidSpark: This is the science playground for inspiring children under the age of eight. 
  • Weston Family Innovation Centre: Visit our grand hall of hands-on discovery and creation.
