24 Hours of Science: Activity Booklet 'From Seeds to Trees' (2024 edition)

Friday, May 3, 2024
Offered for free as part of 24 Hours of Science

Come discover the secrets of trees!

The Office of Student Academic Services in collaboration with the Sonia Bujold Initiative and Let’s Talk Science, has put together a lovely free online booklet of self-paced activities on trees.

Trees are the unsung heroes of the plant world. They provide food and shelter to a diverse community of mammals, birds, insects, lichen, and fungi. They absorb carbon dioxide and produce breathable air. They improve soil quality, prevent soil erosion, and reduce noise pollution. They even fight climate change! But the very best thing about trees is how they add beauty to our world.

Learn to identify native tree species of Quebec, discover fun historical facts, do arts and crafts, play games, and much more. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

  • For children and adults of all ages.
  • The activity booklet is available in both French and English.
  • Register now to receive your booklet on Friday May 3!
  • For questions or additional information, please contact ingrid.chiraz [at] mcgill.ca (Ingrid Chiraz).
  • Registrations will be accepted through May 2.

This event is part of 24 Hours of Science, a day-long event filled with science and technology activities for everyone (children, teens, young adults, families, seniors, etc.). Over 400 activities take place throughout Quebec! The event starts on Friday at noon and ends 24 hours later, giving room for evening and late-night activities.

Science, what a story!

This year we are looking at how science organizations relate to you, the public! Transmission, testing, discovery, and participation of novices are an integral part of the scientific community, regardless of the field. We therefore invite all science organizations in Quebec to help you discover the heart of their work by offering you exciting activities to satisfy your curiosity!

The Sonia Bujold Initiative  is an outreach initiative established in 2021 by Ms. Sonia Bujold, a recent retiree from the McGill Department of Biology, to “reach out” and break the isolation that students, individuals living alone, and families experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Initiative offers engaging and educational activities on the fascinating world of biology through a series of free online self-paced activity booklets for children and adults.  

The McGill Chapter of Let's Talk Science is a volunteer-based group of graduate and undergraduate students from a wide range of faculties at McGill University. Our volunteers deliver hands-on classroom presentations, host public STEM events, mentor for and evaluate projects at regional science fairs, and provide STEM outreach to a range of urban and indigenous schools!
