*LIVE* Online STEM Workshops with the Long Island Explorium
*LIVE* Online STEM Workshops with the Long Island Explorium!
Keep up the learning from home while you are away from school. Our highly trained educators will be reinforcing the NYSSLS cross cutting concepts during these innovative workshops.
Join us each day for interactive online workshops where we challenge you to discover, design and explore innovative STEM projects. We will use simple, everyday materials found in your own home. And, if you can’t find the materials, step up to the challenge and problem solve! There’s always a solution to the problem if we think outside the box!
These workshops are designed to develop an understanding in the Engineering Design Learning Standards. Students will plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
All these workshops are aligned with the NYS Science Learning Standards, ELA and Math Standards. We will be reinforcing the cross-cutting concepts in all workshops.

Monday, April 27th – Let's Go Fly a Kite! *NEW*
Join us for an interactive workshop in which we build and test some kites! What do you predict the best kite will be - one made of paper or plastic? Why does a kite need a tail - and what shape and weight of tail works best? Does a smaller kite fly best because it’s lighter, or does a larger kite fly better because it can catch more wind? What forces act on the kite to pull it in each direction - and can you feel them in your hands when you fly the kite?
Wednesday, April 29th – Gone With the Wind
We will harness the power of the wind to fuel a homemade vehicle! You’ll be challenged to build a vehicle with a sail that can be propelled across the floor using the wind, and we will explore what design of sail works the best. How can you get your vehicle to move fast or slow? Can you change its direction? What is the effect of changing the size of your sail? What is the effect of changing the wind speed? What shape of vehicle will allow it to move the most easily across the floor? Is there any way of adding wheels to your structure, or does a smooth flat bottom slide more easily?
Friday, May 1st - Wondrous Weather. *NEW*
An interactive workshop in which we investigate the weather! How are rainbows formed? What kind of weather do we need to see a rainbow and how can we recreate that at home? How is lightning formed? How did people predict the weather before satellites and radar? How does the angle of the Sun affect your rainbow? How can we make a balloon stick to the wall? What do you notice about the weather over the next few days and its effect on your barometer?
