Why Representation Matters - Promoting gender equity in STEM.

Funded by a grant from Lyda Hill Philanthropy and the ASTC, the Explorium’s
“IF she can see it, THEN she can be it” campaign aims to show role models in STEM fields and champion diversity and opportunity in a traditionally male-dominated academic and industry sector. By showing examples of women who excel in STEM, we can help remove stereotypes and boost confidence in Math and Science.

This 8 part mini-series is produced by a team of young adults to help inspire the next generation in science.

Come view our inspirational 8 part mini series that explores the thoughts of young women today on STEM and how they can be on a path towards success in a STEM field.

Building a STRONGER tomorrow. Enriching and empowering lives through STEM.

Founded in 2005, the Long Island Explorium is committed to the development of programs and exhibits deeply rooted in research and evidence-based practice. Our programs are aligned with NYSSLS, ELA, Math, and Social Studies Standards.

The impact of the pandemic will be felt well into 2021 and beyond. We are counting on your continued investment in our mission to move forward. Your financial support will allow us to link adults, kids, and families together in ways illustrating that ideas, inspiration, hard work, and the failing-forward spirit result in amazing things.

For the past 15 years, we have burned a bright torch that illuminated the wonders, opportunities, and hope that science can hold for our future generations. The pandemic has dimmed our bright torch, but with your support, we look forward to burning brightly again and continuing to scale up our impact on all those who visit the Explorium and participate in our programs.
