kubik to Provide Project Services for THINK Exhibit, Science North

TORONTO, Oct. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- kubik has been awarded the contract to contribute to the final design, prototype, fabrication and installation of the exhibit components of Science North’s permanent exhibition entitled, THINK. Science North is a leader among science centres providing inspirational, educational and entertaining science experiences. This will be the third project kubik will participate in for Science North in the past five years.

Inspired by the Maker Movement, THINK (which stands for Tinker, Hack, Innovate, Network and Know) will combine science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) to encourage hands-on experimentation with real tools, materials and processes. Visitors will be inspired to innovate, build skills, and complete meaningful activities, projects and challenges. The exhibits will allow visitors to experiment and discover physics concepts, engineering processes, and new technologies. Larger exhibits will challenge visitors to design, build, and test their own solutions. The Prototype Lab will offer specialized equipment to create innovative projects and designs.

kubik was chosen due to their knowledge of leading edge trends in the industry including the development of interactive electro-mechanical exhibits, reconfigurable/flexible exhibit design and fabrication, along with their trusted relationship and longevity of experience in the field. Julie Moskalyk, Science Director for Science North says, “we are confident in our choice to have kubik on this important project for Science North. They are a proven partner for us with a practiced methodology, adapt at problem solving and can deliver the THINK project on time and on budget.” 

The THINK project represents a major renewal of 50% of Science North’s 4th floor. The renewal is significant because it will be a platform to expand Science North’s reach and depth of engagement with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, attracting new audiences as well as driving repeat visitors and increase memberships.

kubik will work collaboratively with the Science North development team and design team (Main Street Design and Hands On! Studio) to complete 100% Design Development, will complete the prototyping and shop drawings for selected exhibits, exhibit detailing and fabrication, project management and delivery, installation services. “We are very pleased to be once again working with Science North and are inspired by their mandate to engage people of all ages to interact with science in the world around,” says Sam Kohn, President and CEO of kubik. “We make sure our efforts reflect that mandate and respect the objectives of the design in every step we take to complete their projects.”
