Afternoons at the Aquarium

July 30, 2020, 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Every Thursday in June and July, marine educators at the UGA Aquarium will host virtual programs designed to inspire wonder and curiosity about the coast by featuring different activities and animals. These afternoons at the aquarium will include a mix of games, art, stories and virtual animal encounters that provide fun learning experiences about the ocean. Children of all ages are welcome, but activities are designed for ages 4-8 years old with an accompanying adult.

July 30: Shark Sketches
What do you picture when you think of a shark? During this program we will learn about and draw different sharks and rays found in Georgia. Participants will also get a sneak peak at baby clearnose skates at the UGA aquarium.

Special note: We will feature a selection of shark artwork created by children during our live presentation. For your child’s artwork to be considered for inclusion in the presentation, email a picture of their artwork to the public programs coordinator, Kayla Clark, kayla270@uga.edu by July 28.
