SOUND, JUST SOUND!
January 25 - April 5, 2020
Any impact creates vibrations in the air that translates into sounds. The impact of the wind on leaves, the air flowing from our lungs on our vocal cords, a door closing, the shuffle of ants moving, the electronic impulses of a bell... Sound waves are everywhere! A true immersive experience, the exhibition will make you "hear" sounds with... your other senses!
INSPIRING NATURE, INSPIRED TECHNO - Biomimicry in Transports
April 11 - September 6, 2020
Biomimetism invites us to reconnect with our innate need to live in harmony with nature. The word comes from “bios” meaning “life” and “mimesis” meaning “to imitate”. This discipline is based on observations of forms, processes and systems to imitate the genius of nature and offer innovative paths to solutions. When dreamers, creators and researchers observe nature and draw inspiration from it, all kinds of promising concepts, fascinating ideas and inspirational projects come to light.
This is a unique occasion to discover nearly thirty nature specimens and technological objects presented in a dynamic way by ten principles drawn from nature and applied to means of transportation.
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 the Department of Canadian Heritage and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation.
