Anyone with an idea can be an inventor! The Great Canadian Invention Circus is an informative, inspiring and engaging show about Canadian inventors. The show ties the history of the ingenuity of the indigenous people to the present world of makers. In a delightful mashup between circus and invention, students see how microcontrollers can be combined with juggling, how plate spinning becomes a dish drying invention and how electric unicycles are part of the new world we live in. Important messages about not giving up and looking at problems creatively are key elements in the show.
