Program Description & Details

Become a better explorer and ambassador for your local beach! In this program, we'll discuss how we rely and impact our oceans while exploring how Indigenous diets continue to depend on the health of the land and oceans, how colonization has impacted Indigenous Peoples’ ability to survive, and how to respect the importance of the land, animals, and water. 

Virtual AquaSchool is an opportunity to connect with our expert educators from the Vancouver Aquarium over a 4-week period. Students will also have access to our Online Learning Environment, which hosts a suite of tools and resources such as assignments, photo and video galleries, and discussion boards. Here, students will be able to build on the concepts they’ve learned from the live workshops, and complete mid-week assignments and activities that allow them to continue learning and exploring on their own time and in their own environment.

This is a program developed specifically for committed educators and learners who are guided by curiosity and creativity. Each Virtual AquaSchool series will explore a different concept. While Virtual AquaSchool is BC Curriculum-minded, the focus is on discovery and skill-building.
