Take a trip to where the city of Montreal was founded. Delegates will enjoy a day filled with walking into the historic past of Montreal and stepping into inspiring future generations to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The first stop in Montreal will be at the Pointe-à-Callière Museum (https://pacmusee.qc.ca/en/), a national archeological and historic site. Pointe-à-Callière presents centuries of history from the settlements of Canada’s Indigenous People to the present day. Located on a spot occupied by humans for more than a thousand years and on the very site where Montréal was founded, the Museum is home to some remarkable architectural ruins. Delegates will be given a special tour of the museum with a focus on the Hello Montreal: Bell’s Historical Collections exhibition and the immersive multimedia experience of the Memory Collector.
After having the opportunity to explore Old Montreal on their own, delegates will then have a guided tour of the Montreal Science Centre (http://www.montrealsciencecentre.com/). The Montreal Science Centre’ mission is to foster the next generation of scientists, researchers, engineers, technologists by sharing its passion for science with today’s youth. The focus of the tour will be the travelling exhibition Indigenous Ingenuity. This highly interactive exhibition demonstrates the tremendous ingenuity and vital contribution of Canada’s Indigenous People to today’s society.
