Our programs help achieve our mission to share the human stories of Canadian innovation and to inspire the next generation of great Canadian innovators.

Our Inspiring Kids programs offer young Canadians hands-on learning experiences that inspire their interest in science, agri-food, aerospace, and technology learning. These programs increase students’ engagement and encourage them to consider science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) fields for their post-secondary and career plans.

Our Sharing Science & Discovery programs provide science outreach that engage Canadians of all ages with STEAM learning across our three Museums. These programs emphasize providing educators and community organizations with the resources they need to share and inspire science, agri-food, aerospace, and technology learning in their communities.

Our Encouraging Innovation programs recognize and support the work of Canada’s brightest young minds. From the STEAM Horizon awards to Museum Fellowships, these programs provide experiences and funding that will fuel the work of Canada’s next great innovators.

Our Protecting Heritage & Sharing Culture programs preserve the artifacts and living memories that honour and celebrate Canada’s rich history of innovation. These programs support restoration projects and special projects that collect and share our country’s stories.
