For the 12th year now, the Eurêka! Festival is offering a rich programming meant for Montréal’s children and youth to discover the wonderful word of science.

Science plays a key role in the development of our city’s young minds, by providing them the opportunity to develop their character, express themselves, flourish and find their place in the world.

I would like to join all the little curious minds and all the young explorers out there in congratulating the organizers who, year after year, have offered us a Festival that helps our city’s youth widen their curiosity and explore their desire to learn while having fun!

Montréal takes the future of its youth to heart. Along with all the passionate people behind the Eurêka! Festival, we will be able to help young minds reach their full potential and to awaken their desire to create. Scientific knowledge, curiosity and creativity are all assets to our metropolis. As it strives to develop, stand out and perform, Montréal needs a new generation of engaged and trained young people in every scientific field.

I would like to thank all volunteers and creators of this wonderful gathering, as they are contributing their passion to building the future for our youth.

Have a great Festival!

Valérie Plante, Mairesse de la Ville de Montréal

The dream of discovering new planets… I’m amazed at so many discoveries! Eurêka! is the result of many people’s dreams, who will, in turn, make you dream and amaze you.

«What I understand is that if children are in contact with the young scientific community and see the diversity in various types of science and scientists, perhaps their whole vision of science, for all their studies, will completely change.»
