Beakerhead is inviting visitors to participate in a giant Snakes and Ladders game at this year’s festival.

The game is a way for people to explore the events and installations that Beakerhead 2017 has to offer, and will be held at various locations throughout Calgary from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

There are 14 sites to check out in total. At each one, participants can choose to move in one of two directions, leading them to different Beakerhead experiences.

“They all represent the ups and downs of innovation,” Beakerhead co-founder Jay Ingram said. “You’re going to see the 2017 Beakerhead interpretation of what challenges in innovation are by going to these Snakes and Ladders sites.”

“It is unlike any event you’ve ever been to before because it’s incredibly creative,” Ingram said. “It’s not just science; it’s science, arts and engineering and the creativity you can generate if you put all three together.”
