School Programs 2006-2007: General Information

School Programs 2006-2007:
General Information

An exciting adventure in hands on learning!

Students discover, enjoy and marvel at science and technology in school programs designed to complement school curricula in math, science and technology, and social studies. Our programs extend the classroom experience, emphasizing active participation, hands-on opportunities and problem-solving.

Activity-centred workshops and programs are geared to the needs of younger students while intermediate and senior students are stimulated with interactive, problem - solving activities, demonstrations and discovery searches . A wealth of information is shared in our pre- and post-visit activities package that accompanies each School Program.

School groups can choose from a variety of guided school programs as well as self-guided packages and our new virtual program (classroom resource for teachers).

Program Information

Programs are available weekdays from September 26 to June 22 and are scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Duration is generally 90 minutes, but can be modified to suit your requirements.

Please note that the Museum will be closed September 11 to 15, 2006.


Programs for Teachers

In search of a professional development opportunity? Here's what the Museum offers:

Discover the Museum Days

Superintendents, Coordinators, Principals and Faculties of Education, help your staff rediscover the Museum as a teaching resource. Free one-day sessions at the Museum are available for groups of 20 or more teachers. Become familiar with the range of exhibits, programs and educational services that the Museum offers.

Curriculum-Based Workshops

Need help with your science and technology curriculum? Looking for resources, strategies and fun ideas? Our new curriculum-based workshops just for teachers are offered on a variety of topics.

Call 613 991-3053 or 1-866-442-4416 for more information.


Planning Your Visit

We strongly recommend the following ratios for student supervision (by adults) when visiting the Museum. During a Guided Program, Museum Educators encourage teachers and accompanying adults to participate and assist with programs. Proper supervision during free time or with a Self-Guided Program is also essential in creating a safe and fun atmosphere at the Museum.

Elementary (K-8)10:1
Secondary (9 and up)15:1

Teachers and supervisors are expected to remain with their students at all times. Teachers may preview the exhibit halls at any time at no cost by presenting proof of their teaching status at Reception.

Coming from out-of-town?
The National Capital Commission has created a pre-visit kit designed to help prepare your students for their visit to the capital. Follow this link to Get Ready for the Capital.

Reserving Your Visit

Consult the listing of programs and make your selection. Reserve as early as possible to avoid disappointment, a minimum of one month in advance.

Confirmation of your scheduled program will be sent to you. If you choose a Guided Program, a Museum Educator will call to help plan your visit. Arrange any schedule requirements and special student needs at this time. Prepare your students for the program using the pre-visit package that will be mailed to you.
