Field Trips Engage Active Minds - Let Us Help You Make Your Visit Amazing!

Join our team of learning experts at the Vancouver Aquarium for an exclusive sneak-peek at our new year of exciting programming.

During our teacher preview, get an insider’s look at the habitats, animals, science, and research that happen both at the Vancouver Aquarium and around the world.  Dive into our diverse ecosystems, learn about how scientists study animals and their environments, and explore how our actions can have an impact on the world around us through exclusive opportunities and fun hands-on activities. 

Leave with inspiration on how to incorporate a field trip to the Vancouver Aquarium into the new BC curriculum, and different ways to engage students in conservation.
