KMS has been asked to participate in outreach activities, sharing knowledge and skills throughout the community. At the FL&A Science Fair (http://www.flasf.on.ca) we've been asked to run workshops for Grade 5/6 students, a similar request has come from Science Rendezvous (http://www.sciencerendezvous.ca). We would love to be able to participate, to share our love of science and technology with other Kingstonians. However, we need to provide our volunteers with a Workshop Kit full of fun science & techy things which will help engage their audience, and give the audience hands on opportunities for participation. We're used to sharing individual items in the Maker Space, but running a Workshop for 30 plus students requires having many multiples of the same thing, that becomes cost prohibitive for our non-profit volunteer driven organization.
