School Education Programs at the NSMEC


The Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre offers a combination of experiential and classroom learning opportunities for school age children. Our programs have been designed to meet science curriculum outcomes at each grade level. Many of our programs are inquiry based and align strongly with BC’s core competencies.

Schools and community groups are encouraged to sign up for our education programs. We can work with teachers directly to adapt programs to meet specific curriculum outcomes. Custom programs can be designed.

Our education programs run from the beginning of September until the end of June, every Wednesday and Thursday from 9 am - 2 pm.
