Future Ocean Researchers Club

October 19, 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 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 served basis and will close the Friday before the event (or sooner if we reach maximum capacity).

October Meeting – Deep Sea Technology

Blobfish, vampire squid, zombie worms, and ghost sharks stay in costume all year long!  How do we know so much about these creepy crawlies that live miles beneath the surface of the sea?  Deep sea technology!! Join us for our next meeting to learn how we use robotics, coding, physics, and geology to learn more about the ocean floor and the creatures that inhabit it.

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