STEM From the Start Kits

STEM From the Start Kits are available at the Bown Crossing, Cole & Ustick, Collister, and Hillcrest locations. These kits are filled with fun activities that preschool kids (ages 3 to 5) and their families can use to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) topics together.

The kits will be paired with a monthly storytime video on your YouTube channel. Visit the calendar on our website during the first week of the month to reserve your kit, and then pick it up during the second week of each month.
