The Glen Echo Park Aquarium, in partnership with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy is proud to offer youth the opportunity to become fascinated by sharks through Gills Club events.  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 encourages girls to take an interest in sharks and inspires them to become advocates for conservation.

 

Various interactive activities, experiments, a live shark and a talk led by the Aquarium’s own female shark researcher will help to expand your child’s knowledge about sharks.  Gills Club will meet Saturday May 20th from 10-11:30 am.  Participation is free, however, space is limited and preregistration is required. This program is for kids (girls and boys) ages 5-12.
