Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in Gloucester Point. Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation by a scientist from VIMS.
The February installment of the Discovery Lab series takes place on Tuesday, February 20th and will highlight different types of predatory fishes found in the Chesapeake Bay. Through hands-on activities, participants will explore how predatory fishes have evolved to become such excellent hunters.
All Discovery Labs take place from 6:00-8:00 pm (presentation from 6:30-7:00 pm) on the VIMS campus in Gloucester Point. Registration is required due to limited space. Visit www.vims.edu/events or call 804-684-7061 to register and find out more information on this and all upcoming Discovery Labs.
