What are STEAM Kits?

STEAM Kits are now available for take-home borrowing at our libraries. These kits are designed for children ages 4 and up and focus on enhancing children's understanding of STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. STEAM education fosters problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and innovative thinking. These are valuable skills that will allow kids to be successful in the future in any industry. Best of all, it’s fun! Each kit includes books and activities on different STEAM themes. Contact your local library to place a hold for one of the kits listed below.
