PEEP Event Kit

In the Peep and the Big Wide World Event Kit, you will find resources to organize, promote, and run three different science events for preschoolers: Exploring Shadows, Exploring Structures, and Exploring Ramps. For each event there is an Event Leader's guide detailing how to set up the hands-on activities, a flyer to promote the event, and related take-home materials for families in English and Spanish.
