  • Paleoclimatology  Explore the climate of Saskatchewan when dinosaurs roamed the earth and compare to our present climate.  What is the difference between climate change over millions of years and the climate change that concerns us today? Students will conduct a fossil leaf edge analysis to examine Saskatchewan’s climate during the Cretaceous.
  • Science on a Sphere (SOS)  Experience global data sets related to climate on the province’s only spherical screen in our Home: Life in the Anthropocene gallery.
  • Scotty Talk/Gallery Hunt   Students receive an introduction to Scotty, the World’s Largest T.rex and the environment in which it lived. Then they complete a gallery hunt highlighting climate change/sustainability topics throughout the museum.
