The Maritime Museum of BC is going virtual with many of our learning programs! Our programs have been designed using the BC curriculum, and adapted for a virtual format using everything we know about learning online! Choose from two formats:

Live

Participants join us for a program LIVE using Zoom Meetings, where they have the chance to interact with our museum educators.  After purchasing a Live program, you will receive a link to register for the Zoom Meeting. Participants who join us live will also receive access to the recorded program!

Recording

Receive a link to the recorded version of the live program for a reduced cost. The recorded program will only be available 24 hours after the live program has occurred.

EARLY WEST COAST EXPLORATION

Grades 4 & 6 Social Studies

Presented in the character of Captain Cook in the age of discovery, students will explore the questions: What was the motivation for exploration and discovery of the Northwest Coast? How did interactions between First Nations and the explorers impact and shape the development and history of BC and Canada? What were key innovations in navigation, technology and seafaring? Students will interact with knot tying and artefact exploration activities.
