New series this May for children ages 7 to 11!

These workshops highlight current research work done by young scientists at McGill University. Each workshop includes a science discussion and a hands-on scientific activity.

Arctic Insects with Dr. Shaun Turney who received his Ph.D.(McGill) in 2018. He now works on the ecology of ants as a post-doctoral fellow at Concordia University.

In this workshop you will learn to identify the different kinds of common insects in Quebec and then you will examine and catalogue the insects that Dr. Turney collected from the Arctic and learn why they are important to science. 

Please note that these workshops are for pre-teens aged from 7 to 11 years old. To ensure that our content is suitable for this age group, this program is not intended for young children. Thank you for your understanding.
