The fourth grade is a benchmark year where learning is assessed and tested. The Science Museum of Long Island offers programs that teach, review, and help determine the science proficiency of fourth grade students. The programs listed below incorporate science, math, literacy, critical thinking, and manipulative skills. Only fourth grade classes will be allowed to participate.

Programs are 50-60 minutes unless otherwise noted.


Avalanche!  Grades: 4  Fee:$165*
Students will perform an experiment with a ball and ramp that mimics a boulder’s movement. The goal of the class is to determine which slope will cause the least amount of damage to a hillside village

Water Works  Grades: 4  Fee: $165*
Students are enlisted as water quality specialists and are asked to solve the problem of mysterious glowing water. While practicing measuring skills with liquids, students will determine volume, temperature, weight, and density.
 
2B or not 2B  Grades: 4  Fee: $165*
By performing electrical and magnetic testing, students will determine if the items belong in drawer 2B or not. Electrical conductivity and magnetic properties of materials will be explored during class.
