Gills Club

In partnership with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, WAVE’s fun STEM-based education initiative dedicated to helping kids, especially girls, ages 8-13 to build knowledge and confidence in STEM skills as well as form strong community connections. The kids connect with community mentors and scientists actively working in STEM-related fields, share knowledge they gain through programming, and facilitate shark and ocean conservation! Each meeting will cover new topics, include hands on activities, and connect Gills with other Club members. Club meetings will be held on the second Saturday of each month. Programs run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Gills must be accompanied by an adult. This is a year long program and we encourage participation in every session for Gills to fully benefit from the experience.

Registration for Gills Club 2024-2025 programs opens to the public on June 10, 2024.
