AWE Learning Computers

The Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) is designed specifically for our youngest patrons ages 2-8 and features over 4,000 learning activities. The fun, interactive and engaging content spans all seven curricular areas: math, science & nature, social studies & geography, reading, art & music, writing & computer skills, and reference. The ELS is available in English and Bilingual Spanish. 

These stations were first made possible by generous donor, Shirley Marcy. Further funding from a grant and donation from Idaho Community Foundation and STEM Action Center has allowed us to add several new workstations, expanding to include ages 6-12 with the The AfterSchool Edge Station™.
