Let's support LAB_1642!

A new, vibrant and dynamic learning centre at Pointe-à-Callière!


As part of the 2019-2020 Annual Fundraising Campaign, the Foundation is seeking to lend its support to the establishment of Lab1642, a new space for youth that will allow us to introduce new creative, archaeology, and science workshops with the aim of adapting our mediation activities to newer pedagogical practices that place a greater emphasis on learning through action, experimentation, and creativity. With this new laboratory, our objective is to create a vibrant and dynamic learning centre that can encourage discovery-based teaching.

This project highlights our past, takes place in the present, and will have impacts on our future—for our society of tomorrow! To encourage the vitality of the youth of today and tomorrow, make a donation! Every dollar counts!

Campaign goal: $250,000
