Shark Biology Workshop with Jr.Tech

Shark Biology Workshop with Jr.Tech

Sharks were present here on Earth before the dinosaurs. There are over 500 known species of sharks in the world, and they can be found in every ocean. What makes sharks unlike other animals? What characteristics do they have that enable them to hunt so well? Swim so fast? Some live solitary lives, others live in groups. Learn about their biology and develop an understanding of their anatomy. Learn about sharks’ teeth, diet, feeding behaviors, reproduction, and more! Dissect a spiny dogfish shark and other hands-on activities! (6 hrs instruction) Pack a lunch, drink & snack.

Shark Tracking Workshop with Jr.Tech

Shark Tracking Workshop with Jr.Tech

Why is it that we know so little about an animal that has been around before the dinosaurs? It is only just recently that we have begun to discover the travel patterns of great white sharks in the Atlantic.  The reality is we needed engineers and scientist to build technology so we could learn more about this animal. You will learn about the current tagging technology used today and discuss limitations and future needs. What are limitations and risks for scientists?  Understand how communication skills play a huge role in marine research teams. Enter the shark tag challenge and build your very own neutrally buoyant receiver. Join in the fun team challenges throughout the day.  (6 hrs instruction) Pack a lunch, drink & snack.
