From the carving of stone tools to the birth of the Internet, 101 Inventions That Changed the World chronicles this journey. Some inventions were driven by necessity while others were discovered purely by accident, but what they all share is a significant and lasting impact on the course of history.
Revolutionary SENSORY4™ technology transports you through five epochs of human creation. Buzzing urban metropolises come to life with epic time-lapse media, surround sound perfectly imitates the booming thunder of the jet engine, and countless larger-than-life projections tell incredible stories of discovery and innovation. Don’t just explore the inventions themselves – take time to learn the motives behind their development, and to contemplate their momentous effect on the direction we have taken as a species.

The First People were scientists and innovators, carefully tracking and moving with the seasons and creating inventions that allowed them to survive in the northern forests of our country. With this close connection to the natural world, the Indigenous People of Canada developed a strong culture, rooted in respect for the environment. "Under the Same Stars: Minwaadiziwin" aims to give visitors a chance to learn about the Indigenous worldview and sit at the fire with two people who are connected to the traditional ways. Visitors will leave the planetarium with an understanding of common constellations visible in the night sky and the Anishinaabe stories that define them. Minwaadiziwin is an Ojibwe term which refers to the hope for all living things to lead a good life. As we are all on this planet together and sit under the same stars, we hope for a good life for all.
