Our educational field programs have  been providing multi-day field trip experiences for students of all ages since 1975. The experiences provided at BMSC by our Education Team have touched the lives of thousands of visitors every year, inspiring many young students to become marine scientists.

A field trip to BMSC is a unique way to engage your students in a hands-on learning experience and observe organisms in their natural habitat on BC’s magnificent west coast.

All of our programs are developed to support the Prescribed Learning Outcomes of the BC Ministry of Education’s Integrated Resource Packages.
