Exciting news! We’re working with the Port Washington Public Library on a STEAM event on Sunday 10/25 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Children and their families will experience the amazing, fun, and powerful world of science, technology, engineering, art, and math through hands-on activities and specimens.
So far our incredible line up includes:
- Carl Mehling from the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) who will bring fossils to see and touch. Plus, families can bring anything you think might be a fossil and he’ll identify it for you (like Antique Roadshow for paleontology).
- Lou Sorkin from the AMNH who attended the Daly STEM Night and the Sousa Science Night will bring his little friends – Manduca caterpillars, black widow spiders, tarantulas, scorpions, and more as well as some incredible preserved specimens
- Tom Barry from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum who will demonstrate what happens to things in the vacuum of space.
- Bricks for Kidz who will work with families on building motorized Lego creations as well as using motorized systems for spin art and crinkling paper.
- The Riverhead Foundation who will bring whale baleen, sea turtle shells, other aquatic artifacts, activities, and displays to teach families about marine life conservation.
There are several other groups we’re recruiting to cover robotics, DNA extraction, origami paper folding, and other science topics. Stay tuned for more details.
