Experience Ingenium’s museums on a virtual field trip!
Designed for schools and summer camp groups, Ingenium’s programs are engaging, entertaining, and educational. Participants connect virtually with a museum facilitator — and each other — from the comfort and safety of their home, school, or camp facility. Choose from an array of highly interactive activities designed for all learners, such as mind-boggling science demos and experiments, stories that capture the wonder of flight, or an up-close meeting with barnyard animals.

The video cuts quickly several times, first to a guide in a barn at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. In the first cut the guide is in a barn in front of cows and speaking into a handheld camera. Next, we see her image in a camera lens, and then the shot cuts back to the guide seated in the barn in front of the cows.
The next cut shows rapid images of a guide in a blue shirt at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. First, she stands in front of a green screen, wears a jet pilot helmet and lowers the visor. Next, she wears a pilot’s hat and gestures towards a green screen, and finally we see two shots of her wearing an early aviator costume and standing in front of a biplane.
The scene changes to the exhibition Artifact Alley at the Canada Science and Technology Museum where a guide wearing a red shirt looks into a camera. Next, we see shots of her holding a camera and panning across a glass showcase of artifacts.
Finally, we see a close up shot of a smiling person with long brown hair and glasses in front of a green screen. Quick cuts show this person sitting at a computer, gesturing in front of a green screen, standing in front of a Powerpoint slide that reads ‘Flight’ and has images of cartoon aircraft as well as the logos for Ingenium and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
From agricultural innovations to aviation technology and the science of simple machines, Ingenium museums offer bilingual programs that align with Canadian curriculums.
A series of quick cuts, starting with a person wearing a beekeeping suit, standing in a classroom and facing an iPad camera. The next cut shows the same guide, on camera, on the iPad.
Next, we see a close-up a of a wooden plane set against a green screen, followed by a quick shot of a guide in front of a Powerpoint slide with a diagram explaining the science of airplane lift.
The next several quick cuts show: a guide in a red shirt sitting in a pretend canoe and paddling, a blond guide speaking into a camera and showing an image of food waste entitled ‘good for worms’ and ‘bad for worms’, then the same guide in a camera viewer showing images of creatures from the animal kingdom, and finally a shot of a worm in a Petri dish on an iPad camera.
Elementary students can explore a real dairy barn and meet the animals,
The shot changes to show a series of quick cuts, first of guide in a red shirt, in a barn, holding a camera and pointing it towards a Guernsey cow, then of the camera viewer displaying the same Guernsey cow, and finally to the same guide in the barn, pointing the camera towards two brown Jersey dairy cows.
or discover the forces of flight while observing the most extensive collection of historical aircraft in the country.
We see a close up shot of a hand holding a honeycomb-shaped piece of metal set against a green screen.
The scene changes to show a person in a blue shirt in front of a green screen, holding a small cross section of an aircraft wing.
Finally, we see quick cuts of a mannequin in a flight suit next to an aircraft cockpit and several images of aircraft on display at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
High school students can discover fascinating science facts through exciting experiments.
A guide in a red lab coat holds a metal canister of liquid nitrogen.
The shot changes to a close of up the liquid nitrogen pouring into a cylinder and then that same image as seen on an iPad screen with blurry, colourful balloons in the background.
We then see the guide using tongs to lower a yellow balloon into a cylinder of liquid nitrogen, followed by a shot of him removing the balloon, which has now shrunken and shriveled.
Finally, we see quick shots of a blue balloon animal re-inflating and then several colourful balloon animals re-inflating on a brown countertop.
Many programs include teaching materials that will bring your lessons to life in the classroom.

No matter what the subject, Ingenium’s virtual field trips will connect your students with discoveries that will change the way they see the world.
A guide with long hair and glasses sits a laptop computer. Her image is seen on a television screen on the wall in front of her.
The scene changes quickly to show: the same guide at a desk in front of a laptop and camera, then a close up of the word ‘science’ and a blue Canada Science and Technology Museum logo on a computer screen, and finally a close-up of the word ‘print’ at the bottom of a laptop screen.
Another quick cut reveals the same person pressing a round white button on a 3-D printer.
We then see close ups of the word ‘science’ and the Canada Science and Technology Museum logo being laser-printed onto a wooden block.
In the final two shots, the guide is seen on a tv screen, holding up the printed wooden science block, and then in real time, showing the same block to the viewer.

A guide holds a camera and walks through a locomotive car. The same guide sits in the locomotive car and holds up two construction paper train images.
The scene changes to a close up of a black lighter igniting a white melted substance in a glass beaker.
Another quick cut shows a close up of a yellow flame set against a camera screen which displays a guide in a red lab coat. We then see the same guide in a science lab, speaking to the camera and gesturing to three glass beakers, one of which has a bright yellow flame burning in it.
Upbeat instrumental music.
The screen changes to white. The logos for the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum pop up in rapid succession, followed by red and green bursts of colour and the word Ingenium.
Below this word, we see the tag lines, Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation/ Musees des sciences et de l’innovation du Canada.
A flashing blue arc underscores the logo, which is then is replaced with Ingenium’s web URL (IngeniumCanada.org), and finally the Government of Canada wordmark.
