our MISSION & GOALS
Today's Students: Tomorrow's Innovators.
The Long Island Science Center is a 501(c)3 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Learning Museum with a mission to prepare young people for the challenges of a 21st century economy built on advanced technology and innovation.
We ignite curiosity, fuel creativity and unlock the passion for problem-solving and discovery with STEM curricula, programs and interactive museum experiences designed to cultivate future leaders and engaged citizens.
We are focused on creating these four social impact goals:
- Close the gap of STEM inequities in underserved communities (girls/minorities).
- Develop a state-of-the-art makerspace for the expansion of STEM learning, invention, experimentation and innovation.
- Expand our STEM curricula to include all stages of primary/secondary education (Pre-K – 12th grade).
- Highlight the importance/necessity of STEM education as a critical need for 21st century careers/living.
We are passionate about our goals and dedicated to expanding our mission throughout the community. We have already enriched the lives of over 325,000 students.
