Future Ocean Researchers Club

January 12, 2019

FOR the Planet

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 & 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).  

January Meeting - Ocean Wanderers

Did you know that just a teaspoon of water can contain over 1 million living creatures? This month we will be exploring the very diverse and fascinating world of these tiny ocean wanderers and getting a close up view of what life is like for some of the tiniest and most important organisms in the world!

Please contact ewheaton@mote.org if you have any questions.
