MMBC Discovers Virtual Program: World War II and Women on the Home Front

MMBC Discovers Virtual Program: World War II and Women on the Home Front

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

The Maritime Museum of BC is going virtual with MMBC Discovers Live and many of our learning programs! Our programs have been designed using the BC curriculum, and adapted for a virtual format using everything we know about learning online! Choose from two formats:

Participants join us for a program LIVE using Zoom Meetings, where they have the chance to interact with our museum educators. After purchasing a Live program, you will receive a link to register for the Zoom Meeting. Participants who join us live will also receive access to the recorded program!

Receive a link to the recorded version of the live program for a reduced cost. The recorded program will only be available 24 hours after the live program has occurred.


Grades 10 Social Studies

The Second World War brought rapid change in technology, industry, and social roles. It also brought opportunities for BC women to contribute to the war effort. Through exploration and discovery, students will learn to read primary sources. With primary archival documents, they will discuss the roles that women played in the BC shipbuilding industry and the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (Wrens), all while considering the context of the period.

To register for a Live program, visit our online store. For more information, please email us at programs@mmbc.bc.ca. Please be aware that for the months of March and April, most museum staff will be working from home, and therefore mostly accessible by e-mail.

Please note: Registration for LIVE programs must occur at least 2 hours before the scheduled program and provide an e-mail, or we can not guarantee that you will receive the link to participate. We will contact you before the program, and are available for Zoom troubleshooting aid up to 2 hours before the program start time.
