The Main Library offers science kits for both teachers and parents covering the following topics:
The teacher kits offer educators a comprehensive selection of materials needed for an in-depth exploration of a particular science subject. They are intended to support, not supplant, the existing curriculum. Ultimately, it is hoped the students will gain a better understanding of science concepts in a fun and interactive way, as well as to see the relevance of science in their daily lives and its value in problem solving. Teachers in the Brockton schools, both public and private, are eligible to borrow a kit.
The parent kits are smaller home versions on the same themes. This is an excellent way of motivating students to continue their explorations at home.
Each kit contains some combination of the following: books, videos, cassettes, pamphlets, educational games/puzzles, posters, science tools and suggested activities.
Bookings and pickup are handled through the Children's Room at the Main Library.
