Education at the Aquarium is delivered with a fun, hands-on approach that creates a memorable, personal experience for children and their teachers. This delivery, coupled with a focus on conservation, creates an opportunity for behaviour change - instilling a sense of stewardship for the environment. Thus, Aquarium educators play a vital role in fulfilling the Aquarium’s mission by helping children build emotional connections to marine animals, teaching them to understand the natural world and actively engaging them in conservation initiatives such as the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

Since we opened in 1956, children have been engaged, amazed and inspired by our aquatic animals. Engage your students through close encounters with fascinating creatures and hands-on, experiential programs.
Feature Tours are guided programs that are delivered exclusively in the Aquarium Galleries. Trained docents accompany student groups for forty-five minutes, acting as both a resource and guide for new and interesting animals and exhibits. Aquarium educators lead small-group conversations and focus on inquiry-based methods.
