A trilogy of workshops and family entertainment & knowledge events with a “sustainable Christmas” theme will take place this Saturday, Dec. 9 and the following Saturday, Dec. 16 in Caguas.


In the spirit of the season, this month’s calendar of activities at the Criollo Center for Science and Technology of the Caribbean (C3Tec) will focus on sustainability and fun.


“In December, the Magic Is in Sustainability” is the theme, so all activities will be focused on promoting environmental awareness and caring for the planet.


“We are going to celebrate Christmas as we are used to, with the joy of the season, but with the evolution of knowledge through face-to-face workshops,” C3Tec Executive Director Tasha Endara said.


This Saturday, C3Tec will open its doors with three free workshops sponsored by 3M, Ford and Johnson & Johnson.


In addition, attendance at the workshops count toward green contact hours. In the workshop “Steam for Kids: Evergreen at C3Tec,” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., children from 3 to 9 years old will learn about the environment and how to reduce their environmental impact. In the workshop “Maker Academy: The Art of Digital Design,” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., children ages 10 to 15 will learn how to design and model three-dimensional objects using digital tools. And in the “Join the STEM Movement” workshop, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., girls ages 12 to 17 will explore their capabilities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).


On Saturday, Dec. 16, C3Tec will celebrate a sustainable Christmas with various events that include fun activities such as the Sustainable Christmas Workshop, Mathematics in the Christmas Kitchen, Ornament Making, Farmer’s Market and the making of the picturesque “ugly sweater,” for which attendees must wear a white shirt that they can paint.


To add more joy to the proceedings, a special performance by Puppet Theater of the Municipality of Caguas’ Department of Cultural Development will be presented. Admission is $7 and tickets can be purchased at the museum’s box office.


To participate in the workshops, it is necessary to register with Eventbrite. For more information, visit C3Tec’s social media or website: https://c3tec.org/ or contact Bianca Santiago Aponte: bianca@perfectpartnerspr.com or 787-718-9466.
