Gills Club March Meeting

March 25, 2017

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 25th 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. 

Paleontologists are scientists who study the fossils of prehistoric organisms.  Sharks are pretty ancient creatures with fossils dating back nearly 450 million years - that's even older than the dinosaurs!  This month Gills will become junior paleontologists and dig into to figuring out how scientists study shark fossils, what we can learn from them and even excavating some fun fossils of their own!  

Participation in the Gills Club events is free but does not cover visiting Mote Aquarium. RSVP 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 etodd@mote.org if you have any questions or to cancel your reservation.
