More than fifty-two million people – many of them Toronto students – have visited the Ontario Science Centre. So it was only fitting that students were invited to attend the  Centre’s 50th  anniversary party last Friday.

While the students were engaged  in some “mad-scientist looking experiments,” Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, toured  Inventorium 2.0, the Centre’s newest exhibition.

This exhibition brings visitors’ imagination to life through a range of hands-on activities, including coding, lasering, science art making and weaving.

“The Science Centre has always been a unique cultural attraction (for Toronto students),” said Tibollo.

“This year, we celebrate the many ways it has enriched the lives of Ontarians and visitors to this province. We look forward to many more years of science exploration,” he said.
