Join us for a scientific and artistic investigation of the most misunderstood predator - the SHARK! Dive into an in-depth experience of the anatomy and biology of sharks as well as other fish species. With the guidance of CCE Marine Program Educator, Hazel Wodehouse, participants will work in teams to perform a shark dissection and make first-hand comparisons between the anatomy of sharks and other fish. With the knowledge and inspiration gathered from our talks and hands-on experience, create your own pieces of artwork with the guidance and expertise of local artist, Carolyn Munaco.
This program is for ages 6+ that are interested and want to observe and participate in actual animal dissections. Children under 6 are welcome if accompanied by an adult for the duration of the program. Please don't register yourself or your child if you aren't willing to participate in the dissections.
Participants should pack a lunch, bring a change of clothes, and wear clothing that can get messy. Closed-toed shoes are required.
Students create a shark tooth necklace, a shark painting, go on a nature walk around the Tiana Bayside habitats, and end the day with a shark dissection. Sprinkled throughout the day will be discussions about the biology and ecological importance of sharks.
