There’s still time to register your children in grades Pre-K through 3 for Vanderbilt workshops on Wednesday-Friday, December 26, 27 and 28, where they can learn, create and have fun.

Sponsored by Northwell Health, the workshops are offered by the Education Department at the Vanderbilt Learning Center, located on the Museum grounds at 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport, N.Y.

Educators take children on tours through the Museum’s natural-history galleries, which inspire hands-on creative projects when they return to the Learning Center.

All workshops are from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Fee: $20 / $18 members. Advanced registration is required. To register, or get more information, please call 631-854-5539.
