Starting in the spring of 2020, we will be welcoming teachers to apply for a chance to provide students with a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience. At AquaSchool, the Vancouver Aquarium is your classroom every day for an entire week!
Work closely with Ocean Wise's passionate education coordinators, volunteers, and staff to develop a unique week of programming. Classes will have the opportunity to come in before opening hours, to hear how diverse Ocean Wise staff became advocates for ocean conservation, and to visit our behind-the-scenes wet lab.
Our goal is to engage students through a personalized experience that ignites their passion for conservation and incorporates their prior knowledge and interests as they learn about real-world issues.
AquaSchool will equip your students with the skills to become better observers, creative critical thinkers, and youth ambassadors in a rapidly changing environment.
A separate application must be filled in for each class applying.
Teachers who apply should be committed, thoughtful professionals who themselves are curious and creative.
The teacher is accepted into the program (not a class, grade or school). In the event of changes to grade or school assignments, acceptance follows the teacher (with the approval of the site coordinator).

Our students came back from AquaSchool engaged in conservation issues; AquaSchool has really impacted their thinking about many issues, in particular their choices as a consumer and their own sustainable practicesBy Brenda ,
