Jacinto City Branch Library explains S.T.E.M.

Scientific elementsS.T.E.M. is a way of promoting the teaching and learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics concepts to children.

Jacinto City Branch Library wants to know if you're interested in promoting these ideas to the children in your life!  Not sure what we mean?  Let's take science for instance.  Here are some videos that can help you explain science to elementary age children using books from our existing catalog.

Coding for Kids and Teens

If you've ever visited a website or played a game using an app on a phone or tablet, you have used something that was created using code. When someone codes, they create instructions for a computer to follow, and this makes it possible for us to play computer games, use apps, browse the web, and more. Learning to code allows someone endless opportunities, including creating their own games and even their own websites!

Alexander's bad day makes for a great book.
