“Until the 21st century changed everything, inventions were mostly the result of improbable events,
sudden spills, chance meetings, bad weather, bad tempers, even a bad case of “the trots!”
Everything from the dry cleaning industry to egg cartons to snowmobiles owes much to coincidence. Do accidents and coincidence still happen in these days of the internet and intense R&D? And where does Canada fit in?
This presentation has some of these fascinating invention stories.
Everyone is welcome! Students are free and visitors pay $5 each visit.
