TV Shark Brothers to appear at TC science center June 23-24


The Shark Brothers will appear at 1 and 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 23 and 24, at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College. Tickets are $5 for children, seniors and students and $7 for adults. Parking is free.

Sean and Brooks Paxton’s fascination with sharks took hold during childhood, after seeing the movie “Jaws” in 1975.

Since the early 2000s, as the Shark Brothers, they have become known as innovators and shark experts, taking an active role in shark management and conservation efforts through their experience as explorers, divers, anglers, performers and producers.

They are now widely recognized as influential personalities in the world of educational entertainment with regard to a number of topics including sharks. 

TJC science center coordinator Brian Kremer says their new interactive multimedia presentation will engage the audience and teach them all about sharks and their line of work, plus they will have some exclusive footage to show.

In conjunction with the Shark Brothers’ appearance, the TJC science center will offer its new dome show, “Great White Shark,” with show times set for 11 a.m., noon, 2 and 4 p.m. The TJC science center is located at 1411 E. Lake St.
