Field Trips For All Ages

Children and their teachers have been participating in Vancouver Aquarium school programs since 1956. Through our hands-on programs, Aquarium educators touch the lives of thousands of visitors, students and teachers every year and are turning education into action for change. Staff-facilitated school programs are 1-2 hours in length and are held both in our galleries and our behind-the-scenes classrooms, including our renowned Wet Lab learning facility.

A field trip to the Vancouver Aquarium is a unique way to engage your students in a hands-on learning experience with incredible marine life.

All of our programs are developed to support the Prescribed Learning Outcomes of the BC Ministry of Education’s Integrated Resource Packages.
