Long Island Explorium


The Long Island Explorium, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and a chartered member of the New York State Department of Education, serves as a dynamic Children's Science Museum dedicated to advancing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) education. Our mission centers on igniting a passion for discovery and innovation in young minds, providing them with the tools and confidence to navigate challenges through our unique "fail forward" philosophy. This approach underscores the value of resilience and teamwork, essential components in the pursuit of learning and creativity. Our educational programs, interactive exhibits, and commitment to serving as Long Island's Family Maker Space, including hosting the annual Maker Faire Long Island, reflect our dedication to fostering an environment where curiosity leads to lifelong learning and invention. Today, the Explorium continues to expand its programming to include professional teacher development and training to meet the goals of the Next Generation Science Standards in New York State. The Long Island Explorium is a New York State-certified provider of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education ( CTLE) credits.
