Industry 4.0 describes the digitization of the manufacturing sector and encompasses a range of emerging technologies forming the fourth industrial revolution.

Together, V4Lab participants work in teams on a collaborative project celebrating Canada’s 150th year anniversary to be hosted at the Ontario Science Centre. Participants build an art installation in the Science Centre’s new Inventorium space, prototyping using Arduino, an open-source electronics platform and other technologies. They explore what it means to be Canadian including understanding data about Canada and Canadians to create an interactive public display.

The workshops will be paired with discussions on technologies, disruptive innovations, research and artists at Ryerson to help participants to dream of their future and contribution in Industry 4.0 and beyond.

Join us and learn what you need to prepare for this new era.


This workshop is designed for middle and high-school students aged 12-16 years old (grades 6-10) with an interest in design, technology, art, science, and engineering.


Canada’s knowledge-based economy is continuing to grow requiring graduates to be well versed in all types of digital tools and technologies. This intensive workshop gives students an opportunity to engage with these technologies in a post-secondary environment.

Week #1  – Monday, July 17 – Friday, July 21, 2017
