First-ever SWERVE technology festival sees thousands of visitors touch the future
New directions. No limits.
TOUCH THE FUTURE
From robot dance parties and 3D printed delights to virtual spacewalks outside the International Space Station and towering block creations, there was something for each of the 3,500+ visitors to the first-ever SWERVE festival.
To SWERVE is to change direction. Often suddenly.
It’s a shift to get around the big obstacles that stand in our way.
A swerve is a conscious act of innovation and it’s what the world needs now. From how we use energy to how we produce food, from the way we make things to how we get around, the world is coming up against barriers that require us to swerve before we run out of road.
Hosted by the Nuclear Innovation Institute, SWERVE offered a hands-on experience—for kids and adults—with the sensors and automation that are revolutionizing industry, the 3D printing techniques remaking manufacturing, and the digital tools that are changing everything from energy to health care.
Over three days in September 2022, SWERVE brought the frontiers of science and technology to Bruce, Grey, and Huron counties, allowing us all to imagine the possibilities that can put us on the path to a better future.
