Challenge

The VICM is committed to continuing to be an informal education resource for the community while the museum doors are temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Many children in the territory do not have access to electronic media or other developmental resources in their homes.

Solution

By providing advanced Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math (STREAM) based kits for kids of low-income families we can help children throughout our community have opportunities to Explore, Play, Discover in their homes during the pandemic this summer.

Long-Term Impact

Discovery Kits are a means to bring informal education into the home by delivering books, art supplies, and science engineering/ experiment materials to those most in need. These kits will make it possible for young people to take initiative in improving their own science literacy and STREAM skills, foster understanding of real-world applications of science and ultimately promote lifelong learning.
