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, November 18th 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.
Why do groups of thousands of rays migrate hundreds of miles each year? What’s the closest to Sarasota a great white shark has ever been tracked? Can sharks sense hurricanes before they happen and evacuate? At this month’s meeting we answer these and other interesting questions regarding the remarkable migration and movement patterns of some of our favorite sharks and rays. Come along and learn with us as we explore some of their FINtastic Voyages!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or to cancel your reservation.
We’re proud to announce that we’ve exceeded our goal! But we’re not stopping there. Fundraising continues until our annual black-tie gala, Oceanic Evening on October 29, 2016.
