Options for Getting Supplies for the Explore STEM @Home Program Activities

  1. GATHER SUPPLIES FROM HOME: Download the List of Supplies for the program(s) your child is registered for and gather the supplies from your house.
  2. PURCHASE SUPPLIES NEEDED: Any supplies that you do not have at your house, can be purchased from Amazon, Target, or Walmart through Supply Store links on this page – or you can go to your favorite craft or big box store to purchase the needed supplies.
  3. PURCHASE KIT OF SUPPLIES: If you do not want to bother with gathering supplies on your own, you can purchase a complete kit of supplies and have it shipped directly to you. This option is only available when registering your child for the program.

Be sure to get your supplies before the Program Starts!


In an effort to keep supply costs to a minimum, our programs work to utilize as many recycled or commonly available resources as possible. These include funnels, office supplies, cardboard, paper cups, and tape. In many situations, we encourage participants to use what they have available on hand to increase their creativity. Not every material will be available around every home but are commonly available online.
