The STEM Kits offer a wide range of STEM activities that cater to different ages and interests. Hands-on learning is central to these kits and most are complemented by additional books or literacy that are related to the theme of the kit.

Each kit circulates for three weeks, are non-renewable, non-holdable, and must be checked out and returned to the Circulation Desk of the Middletown Public Library. One kit per family at a time.
