You may have seen a bottlenose dolphin off of the NC coast, but did you know these dolphin facts?

Females can live more than 50 years!

Some pods will herd a school of fish up onto the sand of a beach to eat before flopping back into the water? This "strand feeding" behavior is just one of the many ingenious ways dolphins hunt in groups.

Adult bottlenose dolphins are big animals. While some have been found up to 1400 pounds, the average is 300 to 500 lbs.

Learn more about dolphins and other marine mammals tonight at 6pm from Dr. Ann Pabst, Professor of Marine Biology at UNCW at our Teen Science Café: Marine Mammals event. Sign up for the live Zoom program in the event description!

Meet the fossa, one of tonight's Teen Science Café: Schools Saving Species carnivore characters.

The fossa is Madagascar's top predator. While it has similar adaptations to a cat, including retractable claws, the fossa is more closely related to the mongoose. Their long tail helps them balance as they move swiftly through trees searching for prey.

The fossa is threatened because of habitat loss and other conflicts with humans. Learn more about the fossa and other carnivore conservation efforts from Explorer Dr. Luke Dollar tonight at 6pm.

Teen Science Café Whiteville
Friday, March 13, 2020 at 5:00 pm

Topic: Superstitions, Pseudoscience and Science
Location: NCMNS at Whiteville 415 S. Madison Street Whiteville

Oh no! Cross your fingers! You’ll have seven years of bad luck if you break a mirror! Don’t let that black cat cross your path! How do such superstitions come about? Why are superstitions revered by so many? Join Teen Science Café Whiteville on Friday, March 13,2020 (unless you are paraskevidekatriaphobic that is) as we explore how such beliefs may come to pass, whether Science can explain them, and discuss the principle that, “All things considered equally, the simplest explanation is the best.” (Occam’s Razor)

Our speaker, Leroy Humphries, is a US Navy veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm. He grew up in Mullins, SC and is currently the Lead Instructor for the new Agribusiness Technology program at Southeastern Community College where he has been a part of the Science Department since 2012. He says his fascination with pseudoscience and superstition, came about because he is a scientist, and thus is acutely interested in how people view the world and answer questions about it. Humphries is currently working on his PhD in Marine Biology at UNC Wilmington with a focus on the effects of sea level rise on coastal forests and agricultural land.

***Free food for all teen participants at the end of the program!

Check it out to prep for this Friday the 13th's Teen Science Café Whiteville "Superstitions, PseudoScience and Science"! But what does it mean?!?!?!?

13 Common (But Silly) Superstitions Superstitions are surprisingly widespread, including a fear of Friday the 13th and a belief in good-luck charms.

“Science of the Strange” topic of Whiteville Teen Science Café this Friday, February 21, 2020, 5:00 pm at NCMNS at Whiteville, 415 S. Madison Street in Whiteville

What do the Salem Witch Trials and the concept of zombies have in common? They are both strange incidents that were originally explained away as supernatural forces in play but now have been found to be related to actual physical and/or scientific phenomena! Want to know more? Join SCC Science Department instructors James Hutcherson and Molly Baxter at February's Teen Science Café Whiteville to explore how such findings have been discovered regarding these and other 'stranger things'.

https://www.foxnews.com/science/da-vinci-bridge-design-stuns-researchers-500-years-later

Da Vinci bridge design stuns researchers 500 years later Perhaps the most famous painter, inventor and sculptor ever, Leonardo da Vinci's name resonates in the annals of history. While he may be best known for works such as the "Mona Lisa" and "Salvador Mundi," a bridge design he created for the Ottoman Empire could be his most awe-inspiring work.
