The kit is paired with an immersive take-home learning guide and video. Materials available in English and Spanish.

The kits are available for purchase for $36 and are free to local families experiencing financial hardship. Kits must be reserved in advance and picked up on Aug. 26 between 9-10 a.m. For more information and to reserve a kit, visit
