Northern THINK Hub

Visit the Northern THINK Hub where you can Tinker, Hack, Innovate, Network and Know! 

Northern THINK Hub Logo

Bring your inspiration and innovation, embrace failure and challenge yourself to try something different! Experiment with physical phenomena, engineering challenges and tinkering. Delve into processes that mirror the scientific method, design thinking, and creative approaches to problem-solving. Learn, design, create and experiment with various science, engineering and technology concepts.

Activities are designed to allow participants to create products they are proud of and that have personal relevance. The design of the experience encourages the natural development of a community of learners within family social groups and across social groups. Push yourself while learning new skills and concepts and developing positive attitudes for problem-solving engineering. Each activity is designed to encourage learning and share knowledge, all while working together to solve problems.

Challenges require building, making, testing and problem-solving, and provide an opportunity for creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. At the THINK Hub, you are in charge of your own experience! Take a shallow jump or a deep dive into the experiences as you wish. When available, staff at facilities will be present to facilitate according to individual needs and will guide them through with positive reinforcement.
