Credited CoursesPalaeontology 15

This high school science course integrates many disciplines—biology, geology, physics, and chemistry. Through an exploration of the history of life on Earth, students discover the fundamentals of the scientific process while gaining a greater understanding of the past.

A unique feature of the course is seven different learning workshops provided by the Royal Tyrrell Museum. All workshops are available through videoconferencing, however, we encourage schools to take advantage of at least one site visit in order to access the incredible resources found in the surrounding badlands, Museum galleries, and labs.

We also offer a two-day professional development workshop at the Museum in late August to help new teachers prepare for course delivery of Palaeontology 15. For details please inquire when registering.

This course is available as a five or three credit course as approved by Alberta Education.
