The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre announced Monday the launch of their rebooted Education Centre. In a January 4 media release, the new resources are
available online and include all new digital field trips for classrooms as well as printable resources for educators.

Museum education staff have been reimagining educational resources and virtual field trips this past fall in response to the pandemic, read the release. The first virtual experience was launched in November with “Treaties Recognition Week” programming. "A Virtual Day in the Life of a Pioneer Child” and “Earth’s Climate in the Balance” are now available.

"The Museum website has been restructured to allow for easier searching of materials educators are looking for," read the release. "Through a filtered system you can now search for resources by how they are delivered: online, in Museum, in school, and printable. You can further tailor your search by grade level and subject matter. This update is providing educators with easier access to information, more digital resources for teachers teaching online, and those in the classroom that would like to visit but cannot."

Cathy McGirr, Director, Museum & Cultural Services said that BCM&CC strives to support the communities they serve. "During these challenging times we felt it was important to provide new and accessible resources and programs to our educators to assist with varied learning environments. The goal is to be a one stop shop for educators needs to provide resources for online, printable, in school and when we are able for in Museum programming," McGirr said.
