IRON WILLED: WOMEN IN STEM
February 5 - April 24, 2022
Women have made significant contributions to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) – and continue to do so – but their stories are often untold. Why is that? This travelling display shares some of these stories and provides recognition for the crucial role of women in STEM.
Through text and images, this exhibit tells the stories of historical and contemporary Women in STEM, their scientific contributions as well as their challenges in the face of persistent systematic barriers.
Presented by Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Sciences and Innovation

What if we used the genius of nature? Biomimicry helps us reconnect with our innate need to live in harmony with nature. The word comes from “bios” for life and “mimesis” for imitation. This methodology relies on the observation of shapes, processes, and systems to imitate nature’s genius and offer innovative solutions.
When dreamers, creators and researchers observe nature and get inspired by it, promising concepts, fascinating ideas, and inspiring projects come to life.
This exhibit is a unique chance to discover up to thirty natural specimens and technological objects, all presented in a dynamic way through ten or so principles found in nature that were applied to transports.
A production of the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier in collaboration with the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science and the Granby Zoo with the contributions of Heritage Canada and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation.
