Multiple four-week-long workshops are offered throughout the year. Each series allows learners to deepen their connection to ideas inspired by the museum. The workshops are facilitated by museum staff and community members.
Collect/ Connect/ Correct
Museums collect objects and specimens to better understand who we are and where we are in the world. In this way, stuff matters. But people do as well. What decisions get made by individuals on what to collect? What are the ethics of collecting? How is data from collection material interpreted and communicated to the public?
In this spring home learners block, we will dig deep into the Natural History collection at the Royal BC Museum, investigating the people and stuff that help tell the story of British Columbia. Home Learners will also have an opportunity to make their own collection and tell their own story.
