Barcode: 523759

Creative expression helps to develop our unique sense of identity and voice. In the visual arts, opportunities for inquiry through other ways of knowing arise through imagination, risk taking, and diverse perspectives. In this workshop, teachers learn, engage, and experiment with inquiry-based learning through Visual Thinking Strategy (VTS), aimed to uncover and foster life-long learning by encouraging student’s curiosity, inquiry, and imagination. Please register on Webreg or call 604-297-4422, seating is limited.

Program Description & Details

On a battlefield full of armoured men, it was difficult to distinguish between your allies and your adversaries. Knights would have their shields emblazoned with their own, personal Coat of Arms in order to recognize one another.

In our interactive heraldry program, students will learn about a time when brand recognition was the difference between life and death. Your students will learn the science of heraldry, create their own coats of arms, and explore both medieval and modern heraldry.

The Ziptrek Eagle tour is a fully guided ecology based tour that takes students through the treetops on a series of five ziplines, suspension bridges and observation platforms. This tour is similar to the Bear Tour but includes different ziplines that are higher and longer.  Our mission is to inspire and educate students about Climate Change and Conservation, Health of the Environment and Living Sustainably. While on tour you'll be able to see first hand the difference in forest composition between the ancient, old growth forests and the second generation forests that exist in the area. All Ziptrek guests are informed about the Natural Step framework as well as information about the local ecology. It is the ideal site for interactive learning and outdoor adventure exploration.
