Mote's new club is geared towards children ages 7 - 12 and is all about bringing real-life hands-on science to the youth in our community! Each meeting will feature the work of an ocean scientist and provide participants with an opportunity to dive in deeper and explore their research through fun and interactive learning stations. Through each engaging event we hope to inspire and empower the Future Ocean Researchers of our planet.

Participation in the FOR the Planet events is free but does not cover visiting Mote Aquarium. Registration is required for all meetings and children must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and registration is taken on a first come, first serve basis and will close the Friday before the event at 5:00 p.m. (or sooner if we reach maximum capacity).
