Past partnerships have included:

Inspired by Diabetes Day
A weekend of programs with health screenings, information and resources for families with diabetes. In partnership with The International Diabetes Foundation, The American Diabetes Foundation and Eli Lilly & Co.

Casio Portraits
In this workshop, families drew pictures and then took a photo of themselves with the Casio digital camera. The folks from Casio then inserted the pictures they drew right into the background of the family photo as a special gift for Mother’s Day.

Discover the Sights and Sounds of Puerto Rico
Families learned about Puerto Rican culture and wildlife on an adventure hunt throughout the museum with art workshops, animal face painting, music performances and more. The event partners were GoToPuertoRico.com, Family Fun Magazine and Wonder Time.
