Calling upon everyone,

The Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier in Valcourt, Quebec, is currently working to organize the Jeunes inventeurs (young inventors) travelling temporary exhibition that will be introduced in the spring of 2022, marking the 100th anniversary of Joseph-Armand Bombardier’s “first invention.”

On New Year’s Eve 1922, at the age of 15, he tested his first real invention, a vehicle capable of travelling on snow. 100 years later, the Museum wishes to celebrate this spark of ingenuity and highlight the creativity driving numerous young Canadians who have left their own mark on history, as well as that of those paving the way for the future. The topic addresses the creative power of teenagers and the inventions brought forth by young Canadians since 1922.

We have compiled a list based on our research, and to help us fill the gaps over this 100 years of history, we are seeking input from you and your contact network to suggest noteworthy young Canadian inventors (aged 13 to 24) to expand this list.

  • Do you know of any projects in your province being conducted by creative teenagers whose work you could share with us?
  • Can you think of any creative teenagers who stand out in your region?

We are actively looking for content and invite you to collaborate and help us learn about their journey.

Feel free to share your research with us and send your suggestions by March 26, 2021, at the latest.
