STEM Kits Available for Curbside Pick-up!

Free STEM kits are available monthly on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last. Each kit includes all the materials, instructions, and background information needed to complete an activity. Activity themes vary from month to month.

April’s kits feature the game of the silent service — Cribbage! Sailors in World War II played this, and other card games, using decks of spotter cards provided by the Navy. These cards carried pictures of allied and enemy aircraft or ships so sailors would recognize friend from foe at a glance. The kit includes a deck of reproduction WWII spotter cards, along with the history of and instructions for a game of cribbage!
