Storytime STEM-packs are an educational innovation that enables educators to incorporate STEM concepts into children’s programming from PreK- 4 with minimal preparation time. A Storytime STEM-pack includes a popular children’s book, all the materials needed for an engaging STEM activity, and a facilitator guide that makes connecting the story to the STEM activity easy.
