Distance LearningExperience Palaeontology


Participants can explore the science of palaeontology from the comfort of home with our award-winning course Experience Palaeontology.

This interactive Distance Learning course consists of three, one-hour sessions, delivered once per week. Presented live by a Science Educator for up to three homeschool sites, participants will learn about palaeontology, museum careers, and Canada’s rich fossil heritage. Aligning with Homeschooling Learning Outcomes, our comprehensive workbook and post-session activities will encourage students to continue learning long after the course ends.

Connecting from home to the Museum through a personal computer is as easy as “point-and-click.”
