2016 Show Information

Teachers and Superintendents:

As an educator, we understand it can be difficult to find creative and fun ways to engage your students in learning.  The World Pet Association understands schools have a difficult task finding educational material that teaches a wide variety of students while also facing budget issues.

Aquatic Experience – Chicago would like to invite you and your students to be our guests during Kid’s Day on Friday November 4th, 2016 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center.  Show hours are from 12:00pm to 6:00pm.  Admission is FREE to all students, their teachers and chaperones who visit as part of a school field trip on Friday. Wristbands and passes will be sent upon confirmation of your space reservation.

Your students will be entertained and educated amidst the 64,000 sq. ft. of Salt and Fresh Water Exhibits and Displays. They will have the opportunity to see the Florida Tropical Fish Farmers Fish Display, Fish From Around the World, Kid’s Aquarium Contest, Aquatic Touch Tank, Glo Fish, Face Painting ($), competitions, demonstrations and more!

In addition, students wearing their wristbands may return to visit Aquatic Experience, free of charge, on Saturday and Sunday with a paying adult, giving them the opportunity to explore further with their family and friends.
