There is no better way to learn about geography than through inquiry-focused, hands-on exploration! Whether it’s at your school or at our headquarter’s location, Canadian Geographic Education offers a variety of student workshops and activities.
Can’t visit 50 Sussex in Ottawa? There are alternatives! If you are interested in having a member of Can Geo Education visit your school to share their resources with your students, please email [email protected]. Visits are arranged by special request on a case-by-case basis.
There are also times when Can Geo Education is in your area and looking to connect with schools to share information about an exciting program or to test out a new resource we have been developing.
Examples of past school presentations include:
- Giant Floor Map lessons by Can Geo Education staff
- Presentations by our Explorers-in-Residence (e.g., Jill Heinerth, Ray Zahab and Adam Shoalts)
- Special school talks from notable Fellows of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (e.g., Michael Palin, Alex Trebek and Wade Davis)
Can Geo Education will only reach out to teachers who are members of Can Geo Education. To stay up to date on our programs and events and to learn when we may be in your area, we encourage you to become a member of Can Geo Education to receive our newsletters.
GeoSchool is an educational program hosted at the headquarters of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society in Ottawa, Ont., providing educators and students in the National Capital Region with an opportunity to learn and strengthen their geographic and inquiry skills outside of their regular school environment. This program offers engaging, interactive experiences that will help students to better understand the world around them.
Our GeoSchool program is temporarily unavailable. To stay up to date on our programs and resources, we encourage you to become a member of Can Geo Education to receive our monthly newsletters.
