Loanable STEM Kits

University of Maine Cooperative Extension seeks to provide research-based education to the people of Maine. One of the ways we do this is through resources and toolkits available for educators and volunteers. We have STEM kits available statewide through online reservation (or contact sara.king@maine.edu directly). We also have a variety of kits available through the Oxford County Office (password = clover) where you will be able to request materials and find a free online downloadable list of activities and resources as well.
