Hello Howard families!
The Howard STEM Committee has a fantastic lending library for you.
In it we have the following:

- Lego Boosts
All Howard families can borrow these kits for two weeks at a time. All you need to do is let us know what you’d like to borrow by filling out this simple form…

Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It’s a simple invention kit for beginners and experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.
Take a look at the following (hilarious) video for some examples of what you can do with a kit – and then dive into the MakeyMakey website for all kinds of creative ideas for turning your world into an interactive interface!
Similar to the Lego WeDo kits, Lego BOOST allows you to build figures using Lego and program them using the Lego BOOST app (must be installed on a tablet or mobile device).
For a look at what these can do, check out the following video:
LEGO WeDo is a robotics hardware and software platform specifically designed for Kindergarten to Grade 4 students. As with other LEGO Education products it follows the 4 C’s process – Connect to a story, Construct a model, Contemplate its function, and Continue improving its design.
