  3. 3. At Museum School<br />Students will:<br />Interview museum experts (paleontologists, archeologists, gemologists etc.)<br />Be given an opportunity to experience and learn about Alberta’s story as told by each of the different departments at the museum<br />be taught how to capture what they see and learn in a journal <br />expand on what they discovered at the museum back at school<br />develop a familiarity of the galleries and collections and experience a change in the way they look at their community, province, and themselves<br />Create their own museum exhibit back at school<br />

  5. 5. How can Parents/ Guardians Help<br />During Museum School, we will require four volunteers each day<br />It would be ideal if volunteers were available for consecutive days<br />In the event that this cannot be arranged, a schedule will be set-up to ensure that we have proper supervision<br />This will be a wonderful opportunity for parents and students alike<br />
  6. 6. Cost<br />Museum School is largely subsided by: Forest Resource Improvement Association of Alberta, Valley of Edmonton, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and Ann Paterson. <br />However, there is still a minimal cost for the week and the transportation cost.
