From exploring Jerusalem, to exploring sex, to exploring the joy of learning with one’s hands, there’s a lot of investigating going on at the Montreal Science Centre this fall.
A visual and sensory journey, Jerusalem 3D: A Journey into the Heart of the Ancient City takes a unique look at one of the most revered places in the world. The IMAX film’s English narration is done by actor Benedict Cumberbatch and undertakes an exploration of the ancient city through the eyes of three teenage girls, representing the Middle East’s three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The film opened at the IMAX Telus Theatre on Oct. 10.
Back by popular demand, Sex: A Tell-All Exhibition, for children 12 and up, examines sexuality from a variety of different angles through a number of interactive exhibits. “We decided to bring Sex back because it’s great, it’s good for all ages, it’s great for school groups as well and the exhibition over the past several years has been traveling all over the world,” the Centre’s media manager Maxime Charbonneau said. Sex: A Tell-all Exhibition opened on Oct. 10.
For families looking for hands-on fun and learning, the Science Centre presents Fabrik Creative Factory, a participatory exhibit that invites groups of children and families to complete a variety of challenges using an array of materials to devise and build derby cars, parachutes, catapults, floating containers and much more. The exhibit opens on Oct. 25.
