101 Inventions

From the carving of stone tools to the birth of the Internet, 101 Inventions That Changed the World chronicles this journey. Some invsentions 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.

101 Inventions That Changed the World is an immensely captivating, unique experience guaranteed to fascinate, educate, entertain and inspire. This experience has been created by Grande Exhibitions.

Mission: Escape from CortX Laboratories

You have volunteered for a simple research experiment to test the effects of flat water versus sparkling water on your brain's ability to problem-solve. Sounds innocent enough.

Your brain is definitely being tested - but this experiment is definitely not what you signed up for. You need to escape. What's more: you need an antidote.

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.
