In 2016, we’ll have 4 different themes that will change with each season; bringing new adventures, interactive activities, and fun into the Ed Center. You’ll also want to drop-in each month to complete a brand new matching craft for the current theme. Below are 5 things you can look forward to discovering during your visits in the New Year.

  1. Starting in January, the Ed Center’s theme will be weather! Come stop by to learn about the types of weather and climate experienced here in New York as well as globally.
  2. Get ready to make some beaded snowflakes to kick off the winter season!
