Take & Make Crafts
Needing a creative outlet? The Scott County Public Library is offering Take & Make Crafts for children, teens and adults. Supplies are free and often coordinate with a virtual program to show you how to construct your project. Take & Make Crafts are first come, first serve.
Do Science at HOME STEAM Kits
These take-home kits are to inspire families to work together at home through hands-on science! Each boxed kit on a theme (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) includes all you need to create three different projects. They are 1-per-family on a first-come basis. They are ideal for children in grades 3 through 8, and contain choking hazards, such as sewing needles, key rings, and other small parts. Each kit is FREE and is generously donated by the Kentucky Science Center through the efforts of the KY Department of Library and Archives.
Patrons: please note that by accepting a kit, you agree to answer a quick online survey about the content and materials to give KY Science Center your honest feedback. We thank you for your agreement and participation. High participation means we can apply for future grants and kits for this wonderful Scott County community. The Materials Master kit (available June 16th) highlights material science through weaving, felting and embroidery. The Inventor's Lab kit (available July 5th) will include puppetry, automata and paper circuits Future kits will be announced via Facebook. Video Tutorials are forthcoming to demonstrate all the kits and their contents.
