Our Traveling STEM Kits

Wisconsin Water Library > Water Library Blog > Our Traveling STEM Kits

[vc_row][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]Did you know the Water Library has STEM kits to checkout for your use in your library or preschool?

The water-themed STEM kits are for teachers and librarians that work with children ages three through nine and combine literacy and science into one story time extravaganza. Included in the kits are read aloud books, ideas for a “science chat”, craft ideas, songs, and for fun – science experiments and activities.

We have two STEM kits so far: JUMP AROUND WITH FROGS! (all about native Wisconsin Frogs and Toad) and DOES IT SINK OR FLOAT? (all about boats and boating and buoyancy).

The kits are available for checkout directly from Wisconsin Water Library by contacting us at askwater@aqua.wisc.edu or (608) 262 – 3069.

The kits have already started to travel. We created a Google Map to show you where they’ve been so far around Wisconsin.

If you would like them to travel to your library or school, please let us know! We’d be happy to loan you one!

Happy reading![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″ el_class=”sidebar-normal”][vc_column_text]
