WINNIPEG'S VERY OWN DA VINCI CODE Dan Brown would be at a loss trying to decipher all the clues and codes hidden in the Manitoba Legislative Building. Thankfully for him – and student groups—there is the Hermetic Code Tour, which unveils the grandiose interior of this ode to Olympus, where the meaning of the hieroglyphics, freemasonic symbols and numeric codes were so intelligently hidden that they escaped notice for more than 100 years. THE RIGHT STUFF: EMPATHETIC EDUCATING AT THE CANADIAN MUSEUM FOR HUMAN RIGHTS Inside the Canadian Museum for Human Rights – Canada's newest, most eye-catching and powerful attraction – students will face a stirring account of the human experience that can't be found anywhere else in the world. › The CMHR's programming is tailored to distinct educational levels with the aim of promoting social activism by showing how young minds can make a difference. › Thematic guided class tours, like "When Rights are Denied", will challenge students to witness a range of historical and contemporary world events, whereby they'll come to recognize, explore and discuss their own concepts of freedom, identity and discrimination. winnipeg • 2016 M a n i t ob a C a n a d a Winnipeg's one-of-a-kind Student Experiences Winnipeg is the vibrant, artsy, attraction- laden capital of Manitoba. We're located in the geographic centre of Canada – as some would say, we're the heart of the continent, and that's exactly what we think of our multicultural city of 793,000, which embodies our provincial motto of "Friendly Manitoba." It's a city studded with fun, interactive and educational experiences that are ideal for student groups. Our thriving arts scene, world-renowned performance groups, cultural landmarks, museums and galleries constitute a curriculum that you simply can't find anywhere else. After spending time in this living classroom, your students will dig the city's youth-friendly activities which range from zip lining, to snow tubing, to dinner theatre and more.
