South Street Seaport Museum announces Seaport Kids Climate Workshop on September 21, 2023, at 4:30pm. Climate Week NYC isn’t just for adults. This event invites kids to come aboard the Seaport Museum’s 1885 tall ship Wavertree, which is permanently moored at Pier 16, for a hands-on creative and educational experience.
Secure your spot today to engage in captivating science projects that offer a unique perspective on the waterways of New York City and the vibrant wildlife that inhabits them. Participants will also have the opportunity to experiment with filtration designs reminiscent of those utilized by the innovative minds behind the +POOL initiative, emphasizing the significance of clean water. As a special treat, an inventive activity involving upcycled materials will inspire everyone to contribute to the cause of raising climate awareness and fostering positive change.
Children ages 5+ are welcome, and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Supplies will be provided, so just bring your imagination. Registration is encouraged but walkups are welcome. seaportmuseum.org/climate-kids
