Each workshop begins with an educator-led visit through the Vanderbilt Museum collections. These include marine and natural history specimens, as well as wild-animal habitats and dioramas. Following the tour, children make creative projects based on what they have seen and learned. Topics include, for instance, ancient Egypt or butterflies and moths.
