Science Theme: Form and Function
The Math and Science Story Time (MASST) program is a Spanish-English bilingual math and science-themed story time series held at the public library. The program presents stories, songs, and activities designed to introduce important science and math concepts to 3-5 year olds.
The MASST program was created for children and their families to explore math concepts, such as patterns and counting, and science ideas, such as planting and senses. Each MASST session is about 1 hour long. At the end of each session, children apply what they learned during the session to create an art project or do a hands-on exploratory project.
New Jersey State Library and NIEER partnered to provide grants for 10 libraries across the state to implement MASST in 2017. Summit Free Public Library was one of these recipients
