On March 31, 2021 McGill University celebrated its 200th anniversary! To celebrate its Bicentennial, and to launch its 3rd century McGill has many projects and events planned.  One of the exciting projects is the Digital Time Capsule.  Over 50 of McGill’s top researchers answer the question: What will be the biggest change in your field over the next 25 years?  The time capsule videos need to be watched now because the clock is ticking.  At the end of 2021, the videos will be sealed and then slowly revealed over the next 10 years.  You can watch what McGill researchers put in their Digital Time Capsule on the playlist on McGill’s YouTube channel.

Please visit McGill’s Bicentenial website to learn more about McGill’s history and reflections on the future and the Bicentennial events page to find an interesting activity to attend.  In case you missed the launch of McGill’s celebrations, you can also watch Celebrate 200: Launching Our 3rd Century / Bicentenaire et lancement de notre troisième siècle here.
