Curiosity on Stage presentations are cancelled until further notice. Learn more about our reopening plans.
In light of the recent concerns relating to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Ingenium is taking additional steps to protect the health of our staff and guests. In order to prevent unnecessary out-of-town travel, and to maintain social distancing, we have made the decision to cancel the Saturday afternoon Curiosity on Stage speaker series until April 7th, and to postpone the April 30th and May 28th Curiosity on Stage evening events to a later date. Updates will be posted on the Curiosity on Stage webpage as the situation continues to develop.
The evening speaker series is targeted at adult audiences and focuses on topical, potentially divisive issues of national and international importance. Events are bilingual, catered, and feature multiple presentations and an opportunity for open discussion. Tickets ($10, or $7 for members) must be purchased in advance.

Targeted at family audiences, the Saturday speaker series brings leaders from scientific and technological fields into contact with the next generation of innovators. These short, interactive presentations bring you face-to-face with researchers and innovators. Each Saturday at 1pm, a featured speaker delivers an engaging presentation or demonstration followed by an interactive Q-and-A session. Curiosity on Stage invites you to learn directly from people working in the science and technology-related fields. Find out what they do and why it matters – and leave inspired by their stories of curiosity, overcoming obstacles, and innovation. Attendance is free with the price of admission.
