The Manitoba Schools Science Symposium (MSSS) is one of the many opportunities the CFDC has to promote fossils and paleontology within the province of Manitoba.
On Friday April 27 I will be providing a session entitled Fantastic Fossils for the Friday Activities portion of the MSSS. We'll be exploring fossils and how they're formed including a fossilization activity where students create a miniature environment and include sugar cubes as the remains from an organism. We conduct an experiment to see what really happens to the remains.
The CFDC will also be participating in the Special Awards portion of the MSSS on Sunday April 29. We will be judging projects in all levels for the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre Earth Science Award. Projects selected will exhibit innovative research relating to the field of Earth Science.
Recipients of the award will receive a plaque and an invitation to join me, the CFDC's curator on a personal excavation to one of our dig sites.
Good Luck to everyone and hope to see you there!
