Our STEAM backpacks contain age-appropriate, hands-on resources and books for children and parents/carers learning together about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. With 15 backpacks to choose from, it’s time to get exploring.
STEAM Backpacks are available for check-out at the Library Desk. You can also reserve a pack and we will let you know as soon as it becomes available.

We hope to engage and inspire young children and their carers to engage with STEAM, and to promote awareness and understanding of the importance and relevance of STEAM to everyday life. We hope that the contents of the backpacks will inspire early scientific exploration, discovery and learning which are key to developing critical thinking, problem solving and innovation in children.
We are encouraging adults to join in with their child learning, exploring and discovering together.
Thanks to Meta, and their Clonee Data Center, for funding this family-friendly initiative as part of their commitment to supporting STEM learning in County Meath.
