About this Event

Join the Shark expedition team, led by Explorer Ariana Santos Agustines, to learn how they will research shark and ray diversity and abundance around Maui and the island of Hawai’i using low-impact and non-invasive research techniques to help inform shark conservation measures in the area. 

Explorer Classroom is an interactive session that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers for short lessons and Q&A. After the featured Explorer’s lesson, your students will have a chance to have their questions answered in real time by submitting their questions into the YouTube chat bar! This event is recommended for student groups in grades 3-8 and will take place on October 5th @ 2pm ET (8am HST). A recording of the event will be available to watch on-demand on our YouTube channel if your students cannot attend live.

Teachers, we’ve also created a new interactive guide, Explorer Mindset in Action! Share this with your students to take them on a learning journey with each of our Explorers that sparks curiosity, builds empathy, and empowers ALL learners to take action. See the Educator Guide here. 

Register for more than one event in the series for a chance to win a special prize for your classroom! Join the other expedition teams on:

September 28th: Underwater Soundscapes

October 12th: CSI for the Ocean

October 19th: Shipwrecks & Sunken Aircraft
