Join your fellow conference delegates for an Ocean Education Evening event on September 12 at the Vancouver Aquarium. This private evening event from 6-9pm offers opportunities for delegates to relax, socialize and experience the first-hand approaches used by Ocean Educators. Practitioners can explore the exhibits at the Vancouver Aquarium and network with their colleagues while they enjoy food and local drinks available at the cafe. Ocean Educators will exhibit multi-sensorial programs in an “Ocean Education Showcase” dispersed throughout the Aquarium featuring Curriculum, Children & Youth, Mobile, Service Learning, and Public Programs. Participants will also enjoy live programming throughout the galleries and rolling up their sleeves in our wet lab.
