The Great War Project

The Great War Project

The Great War Project is an imaginative, inquiry-learning experience developed by The Great War Project Group, which includes members of Memorial University’s Faculty of Education, along with Distance Education, Learning and Teaching Support (DELTS) and the Botanical Garden.

It creates for student participants and their teachers a rich botanical science frame of reference that drives the students into the story of Newfoundland, the Newfoundland Regiment, the letters and diaries of soldiers, nurses and V.A.D.s of Newfoundland and Labrador who served.
