KidSTREAM, an emerging children’s museum, has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the Ventura County Community Foundation to renovate the community room at the former Camarillo Library site.
Plans are to remodel the space into an interactive exhibit where children and families can participate in hands-on activities to develop a vision of what they’d like to have as part of the future children’s museum.
The space and programming will focus on science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and math (STREAM).
“This generous grant from VCCF will enable us to convert a small portion of the building into a preview or pop-up museum space with inspiring exhibits and activities for the community. We want them to come in and help design the children’s museum,” said Kristie Akl, kidSTREAM founder and board president.
KidSTREAM aims to have the Vision Room ready to open to the public as early as this summer. The VCCF grant, funded by its Community Response Fund, will help cover costs for converting the space and for support of programming.
