On Friday, May 10th, 2013, McGill held its first ever “Bring A Child to Work Day.” More than 200 children whose parents, other relatives or family friends work at McGill flocked to both campuses to take part. 

Children 8-15 had the pick of some 50 events, including everything from examining dinosaur bones and prehistoric tools to taking a Music master class and getting lessons in managing a Zombie apocalypse.
