Take Home STEM Backpacks


Help families connect through STEM learning

Learning about STEM can be fun! Each backpack in this series includes books and materials needed to complete a creative, hands-on activity as a family. Books and instructions are in both English and Spanish.

Families can check out backpacks to take home, complete activities, and return after they’re finished. Put a kit refill into the returned backpacks and they’re ready for another family to check out.

The STEM backpacks are a great way for libraries, Extension educators, and afterschool programs to connect with families. Beyond School Bells offers grants for afterschool programs to purchase sets of twelve backpacks for families to check out.
