SHOW, DON’T TELL!

Let’s say you have built an ice cream-scooping robot for your neighbourhood block party. Beakerhead will find a way for you to share your lessons learned at the crossroads of art and engineering ­– with the world!

There are three ways to get involved with Beakerhead as a program presenter:

  • Take part in the core events produced by Beakerhead, like big-time science busking during Four-to-Six or igniting an alleyway during Beakernight.
  • Build something for Beakerhead. Calls for proposals are issued a couple times a year.
  • Talk to Beakerhead about your partnership ideas for programs, events, installations, contraptions or inventions.

Here’s the kind of thing that fits:

  • At the core of what you do, science, technology, engineering or math is involved (okay, so that includes just about everything!)
  • You are willing to help others understand how it works
  • There is a hands-on or interactive element
  • There is art and creativity involved
  • It will delight yourself and others

The 2017 program is now closed - check out the events this September 13-17, 2017 – and keep your eyes peeled for 2018 opportunities opening this fall!
