Our team sent out over 140 kits that incorporated session-specific materials, and, more broadly, items that helped embody the playful spirit of the event. Materials included a *special edition* FOL21 Festival of Learning hat, custom postcards and stickers, snacks, an air plant, modeling clay, herbal teas, crayons, craft supplies, and a notebook. We tried to send out materials that, combined with what people had at home, would allow them to make and create with other Labbers throughout the day.
For some of the sessions we even sent out special materials. For example, the Cardboard Automata session used craft materials and the box that they came in to make homemade, dancing machines. And participants in the Paint Like Rothko session received a special painting set—including oil paints, brushes, and a canvas. Those who had signed up for BiochART received charcoal and the tools to transform it into a mini-masterpiece!
