The Virtual Aquaclass is an opportunity for students to connect live with the Vancouver Aquarium without having to leave the classroom.

Program Length: All programs are 30-45 minutes long, and include time for students to ask our expert staff any questions they may have.

Booking Times: Programs are available Monday to Friday for 30 minute blocks between 7:30-10 a.m. PST or 2:15-3:30 p.m. PST. Times are subject to change. 

Program Cost: Programs are currently free for the 2018/2019 school season

Class Size: We recommend a maximum of 30 student. As we are connecting with you remotely, we rely on the adults in the room to assist with group management. The amount of time for individual students to ask questions and interact will depend on the number of students in the call.

Technology Requirements: Programs require a strong internet connection, and access to a video/sound system. This can be achieved through a laptop. We recommend connecting your laptop to a projector to provide an optimal viewing opportunity for all participating students. We recommend using Google Chrome, however, the program will run on most web browsers.

We primarily use the WebEx platform for our programs. After a program is booked we will provide the option of booking a Tech Test with the coordinator. This is a 5-10 minute practice run, without the students, to see what the program will look like ahead of time. During this Tech Test we will determine the best platform for your program.

Program Perks: the Virtual Aquaclass gives you one-to-one access with an expert educator. Each program will come with curated resources to help you continue the conversation with your students. This program is a great resources as a pre or post add-on to any outreach program, on-site school program, self-directed visit, or standalone experience. Program topics may be customized depending on availability and subject.
