*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, May 4th – Sweet Kitchen Science! Ice Cream
This delicious fan favorite workshop is back where we challenge you to make your own ice cream! Explore measuring and quantities, and the meaning of melting and freezing point. How is the temperature of the mixture affected by the ingredients? Which way is the energy flowing? If we wanted to make ice cream for your whole family, how much of each ingredient would you need to use?
Wednesday, May 6th – The Science of Seeing! *NEW*
Join us for an interactive workshop in which we explore colors and how we see them. When is a red apple not a red apple? Let’s investigate how we see colors to find out! We will explore both luminous and non-luminous objects, the way that shadows are formed and how we can trick our eyes into seeing only what we want them to see. What patterns do you notice in how colors appear in different lights? How about through different filters? What is the effect of using multiple filters at once?
Friday, May 8th- Penny Shine!
Explore how to clean the grubbiest of all household objects - a penny! We will test out different potential cleaning materials and explore which work the best to remove the grime and why that might be. What do the best cleaners have in common? Can you predict which cleaners will work the best? Do some of the cleaning materials work badly on their own but well in combination with other cleaners? Why do you think this is? Can you create a recipe for the best cleaner? How will you record the amounts you are using of each ingredient?
