Fraser River Discovery Centre

Our Trips

Students discover the importance of trade and economics in their own lives. Through games and activities, students learn about trade on the Fraser River, global trade, and supply and demand.

Through experience and roleplay, students learn how industries take on the responsibility of spill clean-up on the Fraser River, and learn about their connections to the use of resources.

Students in grades 6-9 follow each step of the scientific method to conduct a water quality investigation. During this 2 hour workshop students observe and become curious about the Fraser River, do background research, construct hypotheses, test their hypotheses by doing experiments, analyze their data, draw a conclusion, and report their results. Students determine whether the current temperature, pH, and turbidity will or will not be above acceptable levels for salmon survival.
