TO YOUR MICROSCOPES! LABORATORY WORKSHOP
In addition to touring the exhibition, the students will take part in a microscope laboratory workshop that focuses on health issues at the cellular level. Guided by a scientific moderator, the students will learn how to use a microscope, an indispensable observation tool for scientists. They will observe a variety of microorganisms invisible to the naked eye and come to realize that these small, often reviled creatures are essential to both life on Earth and good health!
Temporary exhibition Food for thought!
Take pleasure in learning more about our diet!
Produced with Bernard Lavallée, nutritionist and author, this exhibition invites students to discover the link between well-being and nutrition. They learn how food provides the elements necessary for the body to function, realize that eating is a source of sensory and cultural pleasure and take action to discover ways to contribute to a sustainable diet.
SCIENTIFIC APPROACH LABORATORY WORKSHOP
Accompanied by a scientific moderator, students immerse themselves in the role of researchers. Whether it is to understand the digestion of food or the importance of yeast in bread-making, students manipulate real scientific tools. Fun, learning, and experimentation are on the menu of this memorable workshop!
