STEAM Kits

UCPL is excited to offer technology kits that can be checked out for STEAM explorations outside the Library. Our technology kits are great for kids 8-17 and come with quick-start guides, activities, and links to get you exploring. For more information, call the Youth Services department at 314-727-3150.

Created by Sphero, Specdrums are a wearable technology that syncs with your phone or tablet to create a color-sensitive sound-board. Use the onboard sound packs or create your own to remix music that interacts with your environment.

For more information, check out our TeenSpot YouTube channel to see exactly how it’s done.

Using an internet connected device to run Scratch, a Makey Makey Kit allows you to use a basic circuit board to create touch sensitive controllers that can be used to interact with games, play music, and much more!

Each kit comes with all the wires, tape, pencils, and other goodies you need to get started! For more information, you can see our Makey Makey playlist on our TeenSpot YouTube channel.
