Meet Our Discovery Kits! In 2016, the Youth Services Department received a grant from IEEE, Chicago Section to create a new collection of circulating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) materials. We call our collection Discovery Kits, and they'll allow you and your child to learn, play, and discover all sorts of things. Whether it's learning math from playing Free Range Fractions to building while learning about shapes, Discovery Kits are a fun way to expand your knowledge at home.
Discovery Kits empower kids to see themselves as scientists, engineers, creators, and makers. Inspired by both STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and the Maker Movement, each Discovery Kit includes a hands-on-experience to encourage curiosity, learning, and experimentation.
