The Animal Mystery Adventures with Dr. Gabby Wild
September 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Animal Mystery Adventures with Dr. Gabby Wild at NYC’s Explorers Club
World-renowned National Geographic veterinarian and Kids educator, Dr. Gabby Wild, and The Gabby Wild Foundation are excited to offer the first-ever animal adventure mystery series, a STEM/STEAM principle-based educational program that will take place monthly throughout Fall ‘23 at Manhattan’s Explorers Club.
The Animal Mystery Adventures with Dr. Gabby Wild series offers participating children the unique opportunity to metaphorically journey across the globe with Dr. Wild to learn all about animals and nature by solving interactive mysteries during each two-hour adventure program. Although the program is best suited for children ages 7-12, there are activities designed to stimulate and educate children as young as four years old.
Children first start by watching a thrilling animal adventure mystery video, produced by Dr. Wild, followed by an interactive lecture about the topic. Kids then break out into hands-on STEM/STEAM activity stations where they solve clues as they learn. Together, Dr. Wild and the kids wrap-up the fun by solving the mystery and watching the finale video. Breakfast is served during pre-program check-in, where parents and guardians will be offered a welcome mimosa, then remain at the Club to witness their child’s exploration adventure.
Currently, the program is being offered on three Sundays in the Fall: September 10, October 22, and November 19, and runs from 10 AM – 12 PM. Each adventure is $109 per child, which includes the cost of the participating chaperone (one chaperone per child). 100% of proceeds from the series will benefit The Gabby Wild Foundation.
Each class takes place in the illustrious Explorers Club on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, which lays claim to fame for such notable leaders, scientists, and explorer members as Teddy Roosevelt, Neil Armstrong, Jane Goodall, Edmund Hillary, John Glenn, Sally Ride, and Bob Ballard, to name a few. Dr. Wild, whose accomplishments have also earned her an Explorers Club membership, provide both participating children and their parents’ proprietary entry during this educational journey. The Explorers Club is located at 46 E 70th St.
