A few weeks ago YouNxt was given the opportunity to invite a few dozen young professionals to a special screening taking place on August 11 of a Poland-focused episode of Discovery Channel’s hit series Megaworld .
Megaworld is a series that showcases unique things/companies/places from around the world. This season the series takes a look at cutting-edge innovations in science and technology from Central Europe. Episodes focus on: Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria.
The Poland episode focuses on Poland’s rush to complete its national soccer stadium in time for Euro 2012, a Polish company that makes the world’s largest luxury catamarans, takes a trip to Poland’s own Hollywood-style stunt school, the amazing Wieliczka Salt Mine, a secret underground maze of tunnels built by the Nazis and a mine disposal unit detonating buried WWII explosives.
The event took place at the Polish Consulate in Toronto. Those in attendance enjoyed an open-air screening on a huge outdoor screen and a great assortment of drinks provided by PMA Canada. The weather was perfect and with a nice breeze blowing in from Lake Ontario it was the ideal night for some great socializing.
Audiences will be able to watch Megaworld “Poland” on Discover Channel Canada on August 23rd at 7pm ET/ 8pm PT. For more information please visit the Discovery Channel website.
