Science - Learning at home with your Library!
The Library District's STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) kits encourage scientific discovery. Each kit includes hands-on exploration of an interactive toy, book, and DVD. The interactive toys include hands-on activities, learning games, or age appropriate scientific equipment.
STEM Kits are available for check out starting Monday, Aug. 16.
STEM topics can be intimidating for families with less experience. The kits enhance all children's natural gifts in science by inspiring exploration. Using STEM concepts in play builds confidence, motivation, and knowledge in all science subjects.
Our kits are a great resource for children in pre-school through 5th grade. The kits can also be an excellent support to homeschool or virtual learning. This collection is available thanks to the generous support of the Rotary Club of Gainesville. View the complete collection below or in our catalog.
