Penobscot Marine Museum is offering a school vacation program during the February break for children in grades K-5. Parents may register children for Liberty! Winter for a single day or for the entire four-day session. "Liberty! Winter keeps children excited about learning, and it enables parents to maintain their regular working schedule during school break," said Susan Henkel, an educator at the museum. "Each day of the program has a special focus." Tuesday, Feb. 22, will focus on Presidents Day and the Maine connections of Washington and Lincoln. Wednesday, Feb. 23, is Rock and Shell Day, including art and cooking projects; on Thursday, Feb. 24, children will learn about sailors, ships and the sea; and on Friday, Feb. 25, campers will work on photography projects using both traditional and digital technologies. Pre-registration is required.
