The ALA Public Policy and Advocacy Office is sharing the following opportunity made available through their partnership with National 4-H Council.
As part of their annual STEM Challenge, 4-H would like to offer libraries free STEM kits with four activities that explore Mars and space. Mars Base Camp is the official challenge for the 2020 4-H STEM Challenge. The Annual initiative aims to increase youth access to high-quality STEM activities that help kids build confidence and spark interest.
ALA’s partners at National 4-H Council are offering free Mars Base Camp kits (normally $24.95 + S&H each) to libraries. Supplies are limited, so be sure to sign up for kits using this form as soon as you can – and feel free to pass along this opportunity to your colleagues. Kits will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until supplies run out.
To receive your kit(s), all you need to do is fill out this form! Our partners at 4-H also ask that you consider using the kit during the month of October and sharing your experience/photos using the hashtag #4HSTEMChallenge. This is not required but will align you with hundreds of thousands of others across the country who will be doing the same thing during the month of October. If you receive a free kit through this program, you will be asked to fill out a very short survey at the end of the year asking about how you used, or plan to use, the kit.
You can learn more about Mars Base Camp and the 4-H STEM Challenge at 4-h.org/STEMChallenge.
