STEM Kits to Inspire Young Learners

STEM kits encourage children to develop an interest and skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These kits offer families the chance to continue hands-on exploration of STEM topics at home. They include books, DVDs, games and other interactive materials to explore basic concepts in STEM, and they are free to check out with your Palm Beach County Library System card!

This project was made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System. Make sure to reserve your STEM kit today!
