Sharks, Rays, and Skates! Fully Charged! Camp (Ages 8-12, 5 sessions)
Did you know sharks, rays, and skates can sense a fish’s heartbeat beneath the sand with special electromagnetic receptors? Investigate how these animals have the ability to sense electrical impulses present in the muscle movements of prey by creating experiments to test with our skate. Design an electromagnet to repel sharks and see if it works on our skate. Explore if skates are the only animal with this sense.
