Mote SEA Show

This fall we will livestream from our 135,000 gallon shark habitat. Meet our STEM experts and learn about marine life at Mote Aquarium.

Outline

  1. Get a sneak peek at our Aquarium before the doors open to the public
  2. Look inside our 135,000 gallon ocean habitat and observe sharks and fish.
  3. Interact with a guest experts while they chat about different research areas.
  4. Get an up-close view of marine animals, like crabs, urchins, terrapins, and rays.
  5. Discuss ocean conservation and the sustainable use of our seas.
  6. Wrap up with an open Question and Answer segment–Ask Us Anything About The Ocean.

Goals

  • Develop an appreciation for marine life and the role of zoos and aquariums in conservation.
  • Explore local and global issues and use collaborative technologies to work with others to investigate solutions.

Objectives

The participants will:

  • compare the adaptations of related marine species (e.g., sharks vs bony fish; sea cucumber vs sea star; alligator vs. turtle).
  • engage in a discussion with our ocean experts about careers in marine science and ocean conservation.
  • compare up to three stewardship actions for the conservation and sustainable use our seas.
  • Format: YouTube Livestream
  • Recommeded Ages (Grades): 08-09 (3rd), 09-10 (4th), 10-11 (5th), 11-12 (6th), 12-13 (7th), 13-14 (8th), 14-15 (9th), 15-16 (10th), 16-17 (11th), 17-18 (12th), Adult (College), Adult (Public; Library; Senior Center; etc)
