Kits are a collection of public engagement materials and related professional development tools and resources related to a specific topic or project. Kit elements are chosen and designed to complement and reinforce each other.
Public engagement materials may include short hands-on activities, games, longer programs, activity signs, printed media such as posters, multimedia, and more.
Associated professional resources may include activity facilitation guides, training slides, training videos, event planning guides, promotional materials, and safety information. Professional development resources are designed to prepare staff and volunteers to effectively deliver the public engagement products contained in the kit.
Physical kits are awarded through a competitive application process to eligible institutions, and
include all the materials and supplies needed to implement the activities.
Digital kits are available online, and include all resources for free download and use.
