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:

  1. Close the gap of STEM inequities in underserved communities (girls/minorities).
  2. Develop a state-of-the-art makerspace for the expansion of STEM learning, invention, experimentation and innovation.
  3. Expand our STEM curricula to include all stages of primary/secondary education (Pre-K – 12th grade).
  4. 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.
