Check Out STEM Kits

STEM Kits are available to borrow and are geared toward children ages 3-7. Check them out, read about a STEM topic, and then try related experiments at home. Think of them like an alternative to those expensive monthly mail-order boxes. Subjects include: magnets, motion, buoyancy, length, weight, volume and capacity, shapes and colors, patterns, and counting and numbers. Like books, these have a 3-week loan period with renewals allowed if there is no waiting list on the item.
