For teachers in British Columbia and parts of Alberta who cannot make it out to the local aquarium for a day’s field trip, try booking the BCTC AquaVan instead. The AquaVan, is a large truck carrying live aquatic creatures from the Vancouver Aquarium. The educators also on board, are ready to deliver aquatic programs, featuring live animals, props, and activities right to your school.
