The bags contain materials and instructions for five activities appropriate for children in grades K-8. The goals of the activities are to inspire and engage youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Stop by to receive a free bag during food bank hours, 5-7 p.m., on Wednesday, Sept. 9 and Monday, Sept. 28.

This collaborative project aims to increase access to STEM experiences for Iowa youth. Partners in the effort are La Luz Centro Cultural, the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Franklin County, and Iowa State University School of Education. Iowa 4-H staff assisted in the development of content and translation of materials.
