Activities to engage minds before and after your museum visit
Tiny house living is a dramatic departure from the comparatively large homes that fill our cities and suburbs. Tiny houses present many environmental and economic advantages, but they also present their own challenges. In this activity, leading up to your visit to the Canada Science and Technology Museum, you will gather data on your own home, consider what it’s like to live large, and determine if you have what it takes to live tiny.

Measurement: Real-life applications of area measurement.
Structures and Mechanisms: Factors considered in the design of small living spaces. Design based on function of the space and to optimize human and natural resources.
