September 23rd Gills Club Shark Dissection Event

All ages (recommended for Gills ages 8+, all ages welcome)

For this event Gills will have the opportunity to dissect a locally caught spiny dogfish shark with the help of local Gills Club Science Team members and educators. Gills have the choice of observing or taking part in the dissection process and using their hands and special tools to examine the external and internal anatomy of the shark.

*Please Call to Reserve a spot as this event: capacity limit of 40 kids!*

Starting October 14th 

The Gills Club is an education initiative of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy dedicated to empowering the next generation of female shark scientists and providing young girls with hands on experience to help them pursue their passion of working with sharks.

To better serve the various ages of our Gills Club members and engage them in shark education at a level that is age appropriate, we are going to be splitting the Gills Club events into two sections for the 2017/2018 school year.  All events start with a short introductory presentation and are followed by several hands-on activities where Gills are able to enhance their learning and demonstrate the concepts being presented.
