Educational Vision and Mission

la cité de l’énergieEducational Vision and Mission

Education is an important part of the museum’s mission, guiding and structuring all its actions and activities. The Cité de l’énergie offers stimulating and interactive experiences that lead visitors to discover and understand a range of facts and issues related to history, heritage, industrial development and science. The exhibits and animations presented raise questions and encourage reflection on various historical, political, environmental and other issues. They lead the visitor to wonder, discover and question by taking a journey through time that is both fun and entertaining. The activities are designed so that the public, young and old alike, have fun learning. The educational content of the exhibitions and activities of the Cité de l’énergie is extremely rich and varied.

The main objectives of the educational mission are to raise awareness and educate and develop reflection on the themes present in the organizational mission. These themes cover the history, heritage and industrial development of Shawinigan as well as scientific culture in the fields of energy and industry.

In order to meet the requirements of its different audiences in relation to museum education, the Cité de l’énergie has developed educational activities adapted to each group.
