Overview

Registration is now open

Regardless of age, you can always learn new, incredible things about life on Earth while at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise® initiative. During our teacher professional development day, our Ocean Wise® Education 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 that you will leave with the tools to promote immersive, active, and exploratory experiences that encourage students to think about marine science in a new way.
