The exhibition Women Religious, Teachers and… Scientists! is presented from April 28.

Science is not a domain reserved for men, neither today nor in the… XIXand century. In its new temporary exhibition Nuns, teachers and… scientists!, the Marguerite-Bourgeoys Historic Site tells how the Ursulines and the Congrégation de Notre-Dame set up innovative science teaching programs for female students, at a time when the education of women was little valued. Laboratory instruments, school work and scientific objects are part of this exhibition.
