Language English Botanical Garden Students conduct experiments to find the intruder among the products tested. Photo: Michel Tremblay TabsDescription Workshop From Native wigwams to today’s sugar shacks, maple-syrup production may have changed, but the tradition and delicious taste remain the same! Students will learn about the steps in producing maple products from sap. Then they’ll conduct some experiments to find the intruder among the products tested. Detectives, get your taste buds ready! Most activities take place indoors. For some activities, however, we may take the students outdoors into the Arboretum. So it’s important for the children to be dressed appropriately for the weather (boots, raingear, gloves, etc). That way everyone is sure to enjoy the outing.
