Is your kid a science whiz?
Turn those great grades into free admission to Mote Marine Aquarium this summer.
Kids with an “A” final grade on their report card in science for the year can earn free admission to the aquarium with the purchase of an adult ticket.
The offer is only good on certain selected dates, so be sure to check their calendar before going.
Regular adult admission is $17 for those over 12 years of age. Kids ages 4 - 12 pay just $12. Ages under 4 are admitted free.
Mote features touch pools, viewable-working labs and high-tech interactive exhibits. Visitors can see sharks, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, along with more than 100 other species of marine life.
