We are very grateful for your donations during McGill24 held on March 11, 2020.
We still have a few weeks to reach our target at the Redpath Museum: To create a Fossil and Dinosaur Teaching Kit
This McGill Seeds of Change kick-starter will help us create resources for teachers and children everywhere to learn about the amazing world of Mesozoic dinosaurs, Devonian flora and ancient Ordovician sea life. The Redpath Museum has an incredible variety of local fossils that lived in the 400 million year old coral sea that is now the St. Lawrence Lowlands; hundreds of paleobotanical samples from the world's first land plants that grew in the Gaspé area; and a few breath-taking replicas of Canadian dinosaurs from western Canada. While some of our fossils are used for research by global experts, many more of them have stories of historical intrigue and paleontological importance that ache to be shared with the teaching community and the general public!
With your support we can develop a suite of educational resources including booklets, postcards, activity sheets, teaching props, scanned replicas and many more!
