What is Virtual AquaClass?
Virtual Aquaclass is an opportunity for students and families to connect live with the ocean without having to leave the classroom or home. Virtual Aquaclass gives you one-to-one access to one of our expert educators. Each program will come with curated resources to help you continue the conversation with your students. Program topics may be customized depending on availability and subject.
All programs are 45 minutes long, and include an interactive presentation, multi-media visuals, and Q&A time between students and our expert staff.
Programs require a strong internet connection, and access to a video/sound system. This can be achieved through a laptop. In the classroom we recommend connecting your laptop to a projector to provide an optimal viewing opportunity for all participating students.
Activity Centre & Learning Resources – We know it’s a juggling act right now with the kids at home. Our educators and animal experts have compiled resources for kids to learn to care for the ocean – and the animals in it – from the comfort of home.
