The Idaho Commission for Libraries, with funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, will award up to 70 public, school, or academic libraries $500 each to help pay for materials or presenters to support STEM outreach efforts during the summer. The Summer STEM from Your Library program has three primary goals:
- Increase access to fun, engaging, hands-on STEM activities for underserved youth beyond the normal library programming efforts.
- Increase children’s access to books over the summer months.
- Increase the number of children who minimize learning loss during the summer.
Let’s get ready for summer! The application deadline for this grant is February 29. Apply for a Summer STEM grant today: https://form.jotform.com/233515464173152.
