Gills Club - March 2018 Meeting

March 17, 2018

Girls interested in science — especially sharks, skates and rays — are invited to a free meeting of the Gills Club from 1:00-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 17th at Mote Marine Laboratory. The meeting includes hands-on activities based on current research and the introduction of a researcher.

Mote is partnering with Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, which created the Gills Club, to bring science to more girls in our community. The Gills Club is geared toward girls ages 6-13, and families are also welcome. 

March Feature: Thank Your Lucky Sharks!

From the tropical waters of Hawaii to the chilly waters of Ireland, sharks are a part of the folk and lore of many coastal cultures.  In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Gills will explore stories and legends of “lucky sharks” from around the world.  Gills will hear some of these fascinating stories of sharky fortune and learn how sharks became symbols of good luck across the globe!

Participation in the Gills Club events is free but does not cover visiting Mote Aquarium. Registration is required for all meetings of the Gills Club 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).  

Please contact if you have any questions or to cancel your reservation.
