The Library recently started a STEM Kit collection. For three weeks you can check out a STEM Kit, bring it home, and introduce your child to a fun, educational STEM related project. Our kits range from constructing pulleys and levers with LEGO Education, building circuits with Snap Circuits, studying bugs or rocks, and building with Magna Tiles.
The STEM Kits are limited to one check-out per patron and there are no renewals. But! non-Algonquin cardholders and Algonquin cardholders alike can check these out and holds are allowed (non-Algonquin residents can place holds while in the library).
The kits vary in interest and age range. We recommend them ages 5 and up. The kits come in clear backpacks and are shelved in front of the audio visual section of the Youth Services department. Check one out the next time you come into the Library.
We will soon be adding more kits to the collection. So stay tuned for more to come. Click here to see a complete list of the kits.
