Donor Profile: Cowan Foundation

The Cowan Foundation is a lead sponsor of the Perimeter Institute’s Power of Ideas travelling exhibition, a national partnership celebrating Canadian innovation for the country’s sesquicentennial in 2017.

Youth and families take a fun hands-on approach to engaging in the process of science through this immersive experience that fosters curiosity and a better understanding of how we investigate our world.

Travelling to schools and science centres across the country, the Power of Ideas Exhibition also includes an interactive presentation for youth that draws on stories of Canada’s past to inspire the innovator in all of us.
