Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS -



sup­port through the Mu­se­ums As­sis­tance Pro­gram at the Depart­ment of Cana­dian Her­itage. The ex­hibit will first be pre­sented in Val­court, at the Mu­seum, be­gin­ning in April 2018, after which it will travel across Canada be­gin­ning in the spring of 2019. It is be­ing pre­sented in part­ner­ship with the Sher­brooke Na­ture and Sci­ence Mu­seum, the Granby Zoo and the In­sti­tut de biomimétisme in Mon­treal. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of each or­ga­ni­za­tion were present at the an­nounce­ment.

“I am very proud of the cre­ativ­ity shown by the Mu­seum through this ini­tia­tive, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the fo­cus on part­ner­ships and the fact that this ex­hibit will showcase our re­gion all across the coun­try,” Bre­ton said.

Ac­cord­ing to Carol Pauzé, Di­rec­tor of the Mu­seum of In­ge­nu­ity J. Ar­mand Bom­bardier, “biomimicry, an ap­proach that en­cour­ages us to over­come cur­rent tech­no­log­i­cal chal­lenges by em­u­lat­ing na­ture, is a fas­ci­nat­ing sub­ject. The ex­hibit will fo­cus pri­mar­ily on trans­porta­tion, and will be cou­pled with ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams. This project is an op­por­tu­nity to high­light the ex­per­tise of sev­eral busi­nesses and in­sti­tu­tions in our re­gion.”

Lo­cated in Val­court, the Mu­seum of In­ge­nu­ity J. Ar­mand Bom­bardier brings to life the legacy of Joseph-ar­mand Bom­bardier and his suc­ces­sors, to show vis­i­tors that cre­ativ­ity, in­ge­nu­ity, in­ven­tion and in­no­va­tion are within everyone’s reach. Founded in 1971 and re­fur­bished in May 2016, the Mu­seum is ac­tively in­spir­ing fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and ful­fill­ing a cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional mis­sion.
