Education Programs

The Oil Sands Discovery Centre offers several curriculum based education programs for various grades.

Self-Guided Visit Option for Classes

K-12 classes may visit the Discovery Centre free of charge, thanks to sponsorship from Shell Canada Energy. A class visit must be booked and led by an instructor.

For primary and elementary groups, a ratio of 1 adult to 5 students is required. For junior high groups, a ratio of 1 adult to 10 students is required. High school groups must have a teacher present, extra adult volunteers are recommended, but not required.

Ask about the Discovery Hunt, a question and answer activity that gets students exploring the exhibit hall. During their visit, classes may also participate in any of the regularly scheduled public programs offered by the Centre, if age appropriate.
