High School Economics Seminars

After nearly two and a half years we are bringing back three, one-day high school seminars in Vancouver!

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.
