In partnership with Cornerstones of Science and the NIH All of Us Research Program, the Network of the National Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is offering an exciting new citizen science resource to public libraries. The Test the Waters Family Exploration Kit is a fun, accessible, loanable kit which includes four family friendly activities, and all the instructions and materials needed (audio file guides are available in in Arabic, Chinese, English, Spanish and Vietnamese).
The free kits are available to the first 500 requesting libraries! They come in a lockable plastic tote and can fit on a typical library shelf. Applications for the kits will be open until they are all gone/April 30th, 2021. If you are a member of NNLM you can apply for a kit by clicking here. Otherwise, it is easy and free to sign your organization up.
