Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre

Our Trips

Connect Students with the wonders of the ocean without having to leave the classroom or home.

Students will join one of our expert educators through live video conferencing in an inquiry-based discussion about a topic of your choosing. Using visual props and multimedia resources, students will utilize their creativity and critical thinking to explore the ocean. Core competencies in critical thinking, communication, creative thinking, and responsibility may be achieved through the Virtual Aquaclass Program. Big Ideas differ per grade.

Standard programs are $90 per 45-minute sessions and include a Q&A time between students and our expert staff. Choose from our wide variety of programs. This program is customizable upon request* to address specific interest and needs of each group. All programs are available in English or French.

 *additional costs may be required for customizations

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.

This program accommodates large groups to learn about a "big issue" in the world's oceans, either Marine Debris or Sustainable Fishing (teacher's choice). Following the time with our staff, the group then has an exclusive showing of our current 4D film.
