    Parents can rest assured during Putnam Explorers workshops that their children are given the tools to examine, investigate, create and invent while exploring the museum and participating in fun, hands-on activities guided by Putnam educators. 

    We are commited to your child's safety. Workshop size is limited to 10 participants. Face coverings are worn by staff and are required by Explorers throughout the workshop, as well as parents when dropping off and picking up. Temperature checks will be required of all Explorers at check in. Disinfecting and handwashing will take place throughout the workshop. 

    Please keep your child home for their own safety if they have any underlying health conditions. Stay alert in the days leading up to the Explorers workshop for any signs of fever, runny nose, or cough and monitor exposure to COVID-19 positive individuals in your family or community. 

    We understand that guidelines and the state of COVID-19 is ever-changing. We are staying flexible and will be offering full refunds for any cancellations by the Putnam.
