STEM from the Start Kits

From October 2020 through April 2021, we will be offering STEM From the Start Kits at the Bown Crossing, Cole & Ustick, Collister, and Hillcrest locations. These kits will be 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 also be paired with a storytime video on our YouTube channel.

Visit our online calendar during the first week of each month to reserve your kit for pickup during the second week of the month.

Our thanks to the Idaho STEM Action Center for the grant that made these kits possible!
