To help illustrate these concepts, students will create their own species and trace their evolutionary paths along a game board. Developed at the WOW lab (Faculty of Education, McGill). With animator Ranjeet Bachonee. In Room 106. FREE with admission to Museum. No reservation necessary.
Sunday Afternoon Informal Guided Tours
The Museum is open on Sunday afternoons for visits by individuals or families. Every Sunday there is an informal bilingual introduction to the museum's dinosaur collection — including the Triceratops horridus skull (collected under permit from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum), the Gorgosaurus, Dromaeosaurus, and the link between dinosaurs and birds. These presentations are given by Dinoman, aka Bruno Paul Stenson. He is in the Dawson Gallery on the second floor of the Museum every Sunday between 13h and 17h.
Every Sunday afternoon the student guides in the Redpath Museum Society provide informal tours of the Mineral exhibits, the Egyptian exhibits and the Biodiversity exhibits.
No reservations necessary. Everyone welcome.
