Discover The Ontario Science Centre Near Flemingdon Park

City Living

Did you know that 8 out of 10 Canadians believe that a growing dependence on the online world and the prevalence of “fake news” is seriously damaging the general public’s perception of Science? This isn’t as surprising as it should be, after learning that only one-third of Canadians consider themselves “science literate”. (These statistics come from the second annual survey that was part of Science Literacy Week.)

How do we work to bring back a love and trust in science? This isn’t an issue that’s going to change overnight (you can’t shut down the internet! ), but any major social and political changes often start with our youth. The youngest generation is less likely conditioned by the experiences of their parents, and therefore are able to view the world with fresh eyes. That’s why institutions like the Ontario Science Centre are so important, now more than ever. Whether it’s an afternoon outing for the family or a school field trip, every child should have the opportunity to experience one of Toronto’s greatest amenities and a global leader in lifelong learning! After all, the OSC vision for the future is a more curious, creative, and resilient world, achieved through science, innovation, a passion for adventure, and a thirst for knowledge.



First of all, the Ontario Science Centre is a chance for kids and adults alike to get out from behind the computer screen, flick off the TV, and put down their phones. The ever-changing exhibits offer fun, hands-on activities exploring topics from the very large, like our galaxy, to the very small, like subatomic particles. Instead of watching a YouTube video about static electricity, how about stepping up and demonstrating it yourself with a humming giant metal orb?



The OSC is a uniquely supportive, encouraging, and stimulating environment for visitors to try new things and explore that which they hadn’t conceived of before.



Second of all, it fosters healthy social interaction and interpersonal relationships. The exhibits are designed to encourage curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking, but also collaboration. As social media continues to isolate our youth, access to institutions like the Science Centre can be healthy alternatives to Facebook chats and Instagram comments.



Did you know they have sleepovers at the OSC, featuring a special IMAX film and free reign of the exhibits in the evening before DJ PJ dance party and then some indoor camping?! Now that would be an unforgettable family outing!



Or, if you’re not keen on sleeping on the floor, how about having a birthday party at the OSC?!



And of course, there’s their famous day camps and summer camps!



The prices are pretty competitive, given all that the OSC offers. In fact, the Imax Dome alone is a steal of a deal at only $9.00, compared to most Ciniplex or AMC theatres these days that will set you back over $20 once you grab a snack!



Be sure to check out their calendar periodically to see what exhibits, films and activities are on right now, and what’s coming up soon!
