This year, for 24 Hours of Science, we are presenting a two-part activity on the marine fossils of Montreal. In the first part, meet Jeanne and Chantal online to discover and learn about Montreal's fossils and:

  • Montreal as a tropical sea with an introduction of common animals that fossilized
  • Tectonic plates
  • The classification of rocks, minerals and fossils
  • How to search for fossils and collect data
  • This 30-minute online activity is the first part of the fossil exploration activity near Percival-Molson Stadium on May 7, 2022. You do not need to attend the online event to attend the in-person event.

10:00 am in French

For all, especially participants aged 7-10.

Presented by Jeanne Paquette (Earth & Planetary Sciences - EPS, McGill University) and Chantal Montreuil (Paleontology Conservation Technician, Redpath Museum)
