Travelling science expo will help youth harness the power of their next big idea

Imperial is helping to bring innovative programming in science, technology and engineering to Canadian youth and their families - with a special focus on Indigenous communities - through sponsorship of The Power of Ideas Tour at Telus Spark, June 7-13, 2017.

This travelling science expo, presented by Perimiter Institute and Actua, focuses on the amazing ability of the human mind to question, create and innovate. Through a hands-on exhibition and interactive workshops, participants will explore, experiment and create as they gain new skills and discover the power of their own minds.

“Imperial has been part of Canada’s innovation story for more than a century, with achievements in pioneering energy research,” said Theresa Redburn, Imperial’s senior vice-president of commercial and corporate development, who also serves on the Board of Directors at Telus Spark. “Partnering and supporting initiatives like the Power of Ideas ensures Canada has the people powered resources we need in the future to continue our innovation legacy.” 

The Power of Ideas Tour is part of Telus Spark’s Innovation150, celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation through exploration of Canadian ideas, ingenuity and innovation. To learn more and find a tour stop near you, visit
