Blacktip Reef Shark

Gills Club

The National Aquarium, in partnership with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and Mote Marine Laboratory, is pleased to offer girls ages 5 through 12 the opportunity to get smart about sharks through Gills Club.

Gills Club is a STEM-based education initiative dedicated to connecting girls with female scientists from around the world, sharing knowledge and inspiring shark and ocean conservation through events hosted at the National Aquarium. Gills Club harnesses girls' passion for sharks, nature and the environment by giving them the opportunity to engage in projects focused on making a significant impact on the way sharks are perceived by the public.

There is no fee for the club. However, space is very limited and pre-registration is required.
