Groups of classmates are huddled together brainstorming ideas and discussing the future devices they are creating at the launch of Inventorium 2.0. The exhibition’s interactive Maker Place is humming with excitement as Daily Goods Design LABS (DGDL) launches its inaugural event, the Co-Create Future Devices drop-in.

The extra buzz surrounding Inventorium 2.0 is because it is the launch exhibition in the Ontario Science Centre’s 50th Anniversary programming. Open to the public from January 29th, visitors can drop-in to understand, explore and build on DGDL’s future-focused products, including future devices and wearables. Upcoming co-creates will explore connected and autonomous vehicles and modular garment design.

 At the exhibition opening, Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor Hon. Elizabeth Dowdeswell, stressed the importance of STEAM education - particularly for girls.  ”Science is essential for collaborative enterprise, critical thinking and problem solving,” she said – skills that visitors can explore while participating in the DGDL events. Ms Dowdeswell added that, “science is the key to unlocking a better future... especially when that inquiry is related to social relevance,” one of the core beliefs behind DGDL’s human-centred, design-thinking approach.

 We hope you will come co-create with us at Inventorium 2.0s Maker Place. The schedule of events will vary, so for information, up-to-date times, special workshop sign-ups, and more, visit our website or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
