Kids 8 to 12 can spend a memorable morning immersed in sharks, including the chance to help feed sharks and to make a shark-tooth necklace to wear home, during the “Shark Season” program on March 25 at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
The program takes participants behind the scenes of the Aquarium to delve into the fascinating world of sharks. Examine real shark jaws and skin to help understand some of the special adaptations that make sharks different from other fish. Go above the Aquarium’s “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit and help toss in food to the 7-foot sand tiger sharks prowling just below the railing. Learn why sharks produce so many teeth, and make a keepsake necklace using a jagged tooth lost by the Aquarium’s sharks.
Plus, attend a special screening of the IMAX® movie “Sharks,” featuring giant-screen encounters with a variety of species – including great whites – as well as with sea lions, dolphins, enormous schools of fish and other marine creatures.
Cost of the “Shark Season” program is $40 per child ($25 for Maritime Aquarium members).
Advance registration is required. To register or for more details, call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206, or go to www.maritimeaquarium.org and click on “Public Programs.”
