About the Lab
Action Potential Lab is Toronto’s first laboratory dedicated to merging science and art. It is here where the teachings of both fields interact and exchange by way of classes, workshops, birthday parties, lecture series and various community outreach programs.
Why science + art?
The notion of science and art throughout history has shared a paralleled relationship, but in recent years, there has been a divide. Action Potential Lab is dedicated to merging the two fields as a way to encourage novel ways of knowing and understanding the world around us. Based on a collaborative learning-teaching model, we view all projects and endeavours with a researcher’s lens. Classes are encouraged to work at the intersect between these two fields. Our laboratory is open to curious people of all ages.
What is 'Action Potential' ?
The scientific term Action Potential means cell to cell communication. It is that electric moment, the impulse, when a message is being sent down a cell. In addition to its scientific meaning, we see Action Potential as a forum to activate your potential for creativity. At Action Potential, we use our brains.
