The Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley announced a new community outreach program,”Check Out Science“.

CHECK OUT SCIENCE is a series of science kits that children and their families would be able to check from their libraries, just like they would check out a book. This is a new way for families to explore science at home. The great news is that THESE KITS ARE TOTALLY FREE available for your patrons. Contact them for a kick off event, to launch these science kits at your branch with a science festival. They are recruiting libraries that might be interested on this project, so please help us spread the word among other librarians.
