Sharks are amazing predators of the deep!

Do you know a budding marine biologist? The Junior Biologist series of programs at the Aquarium will encourage a love of science in your seven- to twelve-year-old child.

Each 2-hour class includes theme related activities, guided gallery tour, interaction with our animal care staff behind-the-scenes, and a keepsake journal.


Sharks are amazing predators with remarkable adaptations. Separate the facts from the myths about this incredible animal. During this 2-hour program your seven- to twelve-year-old child will:

  • Touch animals in our private classroom touch pools
  • Feed animals behind-the-scenes with our animal care staff*
  • Take a guided tour of the Southern California gallery to observe local shark species
  • Record observations in a keepsake journal

Other activities may include:

  • Discover how well shark senses work by matching the sense to the distance that it works
  • Learn the key characteristics that make a shark a shark
  • See just how large different species of sharks can grow
  • Explore your own sense of smell

*The Aquarium reserves the right to change the animal interactions without notice due to animal safety, exhibit maintenance, or animal health reasons.
