Cowan Foundation


The Cowan Foundation was a lead sponsor of Perimeter Institute’s Power of Ideas travelling science exhibition during Canada150. This Exhibition provided youth and families with hands-on opportunities to explore the process of innovation, while celebrating Canadian thinkers, science, and innovators.

Power of Ideas allowed over 107,000 people, including 74,000 youth, in 191 communities across the country to explore the incredible ability of the human mind to question, make, and innovate.

Thank you to Cowan for their generous support!

“Perimeter Institute is once again thinking of creative ways to positively engage Canadians through science outreach, and we are happy to be one of the lead partners to assist as they roll this innovative exhibition across the country for individuals of all ages to explore and enjoy.”
