Teachers are lifelong learners too

Regardless of age, you can always learn new, incredible things about life on Earth while at the Vancouver Aquarium.


During our teacher professional development day, our team of trained program coordinators will share their ideas and thoughts about the education, research, and conservation programs that are happening both at the Vancouver Aquarium and around the world. We hope you engage with our staff and leave with the tools to promote immersive, active, and exploratory experiences that encourage students to think about marine science and conservation in a new way.
