STEMM and diversity @ McGill gets special recognition

Published: 4 March 2019

This year the Principal's Prize for Public Engagement through Media  acknowledged special recognition to the STEMM Diversity @ McGill, a project spearheaded by Museum graduate students Charles Cong and Jessica Ford.  The jury was impressed that "Although the group is just one year old, it has already been identified as a model for other universities in Quebec, an indication of their success. Their goal is to improve and promote diversity in STEMM subjects. Among their varied activities they have created a colouring book that was distributes through primary schools and libraries in both Quebec and Ontario that includes a “Draw Yourself as a Scientist” page."

This colouring book is available for sale $7 (+ taxes) at the Redpath Museum Welcome Desk.
