High School Economics Field Trips
We are excited to announce our Spring 2023 high school seminar dates! This spring we will be hosting three seminars in Vancouver and one in Victoria. Be sure to check out the details below and join us this spring!
Our free, one-day field trips are fun-filled, interactive programs that encourage economic thinking for high school students in grades 8-12. Economic principles are introduced using real-life examples and taught by award-winning economic educators. Our programs feature a mix of short presentations with pop-culture video clips, smaller group games, activities and simulations. These field trips complement a broad range of courses including Economics, Business Education, Social Studies and Career Preparation.
Our programs are provided at no cost to students or teachers and include lunch and light refreshments during the program.
Sample Topics and Questions Covered:
Economic Systems & Opportunity Cost
What are the trade-offs for each of the economic systems (e.g. Traditional, Market and Mixed)?
Incentives & Marginal Decision-making
Why do people choose to litter more in public parks than in private parks? How do governments allocate money?
