  • Explore the teenage brain

A hundred years ago in Valcourt, Joseph‑Armand Bombardier achieved something that would change the course of his life. At age 15, fuelled by his abundant creativity, he designed a vehicle that could travel over snow. He was an inventor and a prolific innovator, and it seems he wasn’t the only young person driven to innovate!
