Virtual Field Trip
Program Description

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are adapting to new ways of working using creativity and innovation. The in-person presentations are currently on-hold and we brainstormed ways to bring our education experience to you and your students.

As we enter the 2020-2021 academic year, we are offering two options for the presentation normally given in either the Port of Vancouver Discovery Centre or in-class.

Option 1: “Live” virtual presentations for your classroom with our community outreach coordinator
Part 1: 60 minute presentation (intro to the port and five business sectors)
Part 2: 45 minute presentation (sustainability, imports, exports and international trade)

Option 2: A pre-recorded presentation, with eight segments, hosted by our community outreach coordinator

We also have online activities and resources available such as supplemental videos, kahoot games, map activities, crossword puzzles, wordsearches and more on our website:
