2017 Snakes and Ladders

Every tale of invention has ups and downs!

SNAKES AND LADDERS

Explore Beakerhead through a series of 14 sites connected by a common theme: the ups and downs of the journey of invention.

It’s not a typical board game – but rather a way to explore the ingenuity of homo sapiens in a hands-on way! At every site, you can move on in one of two directions. As you follow a route through Calgary, you’ll experience first hand what every explorer knows – your path is shaped by timing and hunches.
