Curriculum Programs deliver multi-sensory workshops to students of all ages. We engage over 20.000 students per year in inquiry-based learning, led by a group of professional educators and biologists.
Our content connects to the Ocean Wise® direct action and research initiatives and advance participants along the conservation continuum. Our programs are aligned with the British Columbia provincial curriculum.
Aquaquest Learning Labs & Classrooms
These workshops advance ocean literacy with students. They create an appreciation of ocean health, as well as personal connections with marine life and their ecosystems.
Vancouver Aquarium Experience
Guided tours through the aquarium connect students to global ecosystems and establish a sense of place in their communities.
These are outdoor, hands-on introduction to the skills and tools that marine scientists use on a daily basis. Students explore how scientific investigation can play a major role in preserving marine life, and how our actions have an impact on the world around us.
“We are starting inquiry projects next week that study our global impact… particularly the ocean. And it all started from that field trip to the Aquarium!”
