The Science Museum of Long Island is a not-for-profit science activity center located on the Leeds Pond Preserve in Nassau County. The Science Museum offers enrichment workshops for children on weekdays and during school vacations. We invite teachers and community leaders to learn about our field trips, as well as programs we can bring to your site.
All activities at the Science Museum are scheduled, pre-registered science workshops. We do not have any exhibits at the moment.

Provide opportunities for children to be actively involved in scientific discovery;
Allow children to experience the fun and excitement of scientific investigation;
Teach science through hands-on learning and the development of problem-solving skills;
Elevate the level of science literacy for people of all ages;
