Great inventions

Major discoveries

Where does the word “sandwich” come from? Who invented antibiotics? This workshop gives youths the opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of five great inventors (Einstein, Galileo, Newton, Edison and Franklin) and succeed in scientific experiments similar to those conducted by these famous scientists on light, gravity, density, electric circuits and static electricity. Who knows if one of them will be the next great inventor of the century?

For 30 more minutes

Take the time to learn more about the discoveries of our great inventors!

Objectives at the elementary level:

  • Acquire a few concepts on the history of science (Einstein, Galileo, Newton, Edison and Franklin).
  • Understand the different components in light and the behaviours of light rays.
  • Distinguish between the concepts of mass and weight by classifying solids according to their densities (similar mass and different volume).
  • Identify situations in which frictional force (friction) and gravity influence the results of a car race on an inclined plane.
  • Build a simple electric circuit with the following components : wire, power source, lightbulb and switch).
  • Describe the effects of electrostatic attraction.
