The Transportation theme is closely aligned with the Trade theme and introduces the concepts of supply chains and transportation modes in the context of moving goods and people. Students in the earlier grades are introduced to specific forms of freight surface transportation. Upper level students learn about the science of marine transportation and the complex web of players involved in bringing goods to market. All students will come away with a deeper understanding of the growing importance of the Port of Prince Rupert as a transportation node that connects their region – and a myriad of products, resources and services – to the rest of the world.
