SLIME - Students of Long Island Maker Expo at Cradle of Aviation Museum

Event description: SLIME is an interactive Day of Making for all Long Islanders. Kids and kids-at-heart can participate in hands-on activities that promote imagination and creativity. From recyclables to robotics we can learn about STEAM - science, technology, research, engineering, art, and math. SLIME celebrates the creativity and innovation of Long Island, one of the most dynamic communities in the United States.

Through making and hands-on learning we can help prepare our students today for the world of tomorrow, while respecting the past. Making promotes critical thinking, problem-solving skills, empathy for others, appreciation for the environment, cross-generational collaboration, and communication. Twentieth-century learning skills that involve both low and high tech can prepare our students to become active participants and competitors in the global community.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Partnerships among schools, libraries, museums, companies, civic associations, and nonprofits can work together to support our future...our children!
