April 2014
Earth Week Vacation Programs 2014We are a crowded world, hungry for resources. Reports on the environment too often bring bad news. To celebrate this Earth Week, we looked for workshops that honor positive efforts to care for our planet. These are not global stories. These are projects that friends and apprentices people connected to the Museum are participating in to make many sensible, small choices that will add up to make a big difference. Each day long (9am 3pm) Workshop combines learning, doing, creating, sharing, playing.
 
Fee per day: $60 ($56 for members)
 
Before and after care (7:30 am 5:30 pm) is available at $8 per hour
 
 
 
 
The museum is handicapped accessible.
 
 
The Eli Whitney Museum and Workshop is an experimental learning workshop for students, teachers, and families. We collect, interpret, and teach experiments that are the roots of design and invention.
