BANGOR — The bad times of the pandemic led to some good ideas.
The Maine Discovery Museum is offering fun science-filled discovery kits. Executive Director Niles Parker said, “We are really pleased to be able to offer the discovery kits this year.”
“Since people couldn’t come to the museum, we thought about getting the museum out to them and these kits represent that effort to bring fun interactive learning to kids and families in Maine and around the country,” he said.
Trudi Plummer, education director at the Maine Discovery Museum, said each monthly discovery kit includes fun-filled activities with the spirit of the Maine Discovery Museum.
“May discovery kit is called Amazing Nature about the birds and bees and when I say birds and bees, I literally mean birds and bees,” she said.
Parker said the discovery kits have been popular this year
“We have sent them to almost 50 towns around Maine and also several states around the country, actually as far as Oklahoma and Texas,” he said.
He said the outcome has been nothing but a success.
People have really enjoyed getting these in the mail, opening them up, diving into them, and learning in a fun and interactive way, he said.
