An inspiring exhibition and presentation on the world of science will take place at Dryden High School Monday.

The Perimeter Institute is bringing its "Power of Ideas" tour to the school for a public showcase from 6:00pm until 8:00pm in the small gym.

DHS Science Department Head Kurt Schmidt says the interactive display is aimed at sparking curiosity, promoting creativity and encouraging critical thinking when celebrating science.

Schmidt says we live in a world that is very technological, noting we take it for granted, stressing there is some amazing science and Canadian science behind all the changes.

He says the exhibit provides a fun and hands-on approach to engage the public on the process of science an the role it plays in every day life.

Schmidt notes it's aimed at all age groups and all interests.

He says only nine high schools in Ontario were selected to host the tour.
