CHILDREN’S MUSEUM DELIVERS TAKE-HOME 'STEAM' KITS
3:45 p.m. Thursday, April 9

Staffers at Children's Discovery Museum in Normal are making take-home STEAM kits for families to use during the stay-at-home order that has closed schools across the state.

The museum, which itself is closed, is using State Farm grant funding to build around 1,000 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) kits.

Museum staff will deliver the kits to be distributed at Unit 5’s free lunch sites and at the Boys and Girls Club in Bloomington. Families receiving meal assistance at the Boys and Girls Club on Friday, April 10, can pick up the first batch of kits. The Unit 5 kits can be picked up during the week of April 13 meal service.

The kits are filled with educational activities and supplies for children.
