Have An Incredible Educational Experience


Field Trips Engage
Active Minds

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.
