The National Aquarium, in partnership with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and Mote Marine Laboratory, is pleased to offer kids ages 5 through 12 the opportunity to get smart about sharks through Gills Club events hosted at the National Aquarium.
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. The 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.
The National Aquarium Gill’s Club will meet monthly beginning in September, 2016. Gills will have the opportunity to meet a female scientist studying sharks and have some fun exploring the world of sharks through interactive hands-on stations.
There is no fee for the club. However, space is very limited and preregistration is required.
