The Long Island Explorium was launched in 2004 by a consortium of scientists, educators and entrepreneurial residents seeking to provide a rich educational STEM experience to the Long Island and NY metro area community. In May of 2005, the Explorium was designated as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit and was chartered with the New York State Department of Education. Our vision is to be a world class leader in STEM discovery, learning and innovation that will shape the intellect, social values and principles of future generations. The Explorium seeks to support and develop the next generation of creative thinkers and problem solvers. Our curriculum, exhibits and educational approach are unique by design, developed to spark inventive solutions, build confidence by embracing the “fail forward” concept and foster teamwork through hands-on workshops and activities that pose challenges with multiple outcomes or solutions. Because of this focus on creativity and innovation, the Explorium is recognized as Long Island’s Family Maker Space, a place for families to play, create, build and grow together. 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.
