The Resilience End Of Year Appeal
Help us Build a Better Tomorrow

Who We Are

We are a lighthouse of enriching STEM programs that foster inventive thinking and serve as a catalyst for empowerment. We promote and support STEM discovery, learning, and innovation that will shape the intellect, social values, and principles of future generations.

Why Support Us

The Explorium is a special place because it touches so many lives. The minute a visitor steps into our museum, they enter a world of possibilities, wonder, creativity and joy. There is no “sweeter” sound than a crying child refusing to leave the Explorium at the end of their visit.

When we bring our enrichment programs to underserved, under-represented communities on Long Island and beyond, we ignite their curiosity, drive their imagination and remove barriers that perpetuate the gender and minority stereotypes of who can be successful in STEM.

 

End of Year Resilience Fund Goal:

$200,000
Target impact:
1500 students

6000 visitors

We are a museum dedicated to making a difference in the lives of so many through the amazing potential of STEM.

For ALL Members

ASTC Travel Passport Program (PDF)

You must have the NEW membership card with the ASTC logo on it. (All existing members must exchange your current membership card for the new one. Please bring your old card to the Long Island Explorium and you will receive your new Membership card with logo)

BEFORE YOU GO - check that the museum that you are visiting is participating in the passport program. Check that it is more than 90 miles from the Explorium.
*This distance is measured “as the crow flies,” meaning that it is based on the
linear radius, not driving distance.

Online radius tools can be helpful when determining if a Passport venue is within a 90-mile radius of the Explorium.  Go to http://www.mapdevelopers.com/draw-circle-tool.php.
This tool allows you to draw two circles in different colors.  Enter the address of the museum where you are a member first (or their home address, if the museum they wish to visit checks IDs).  Then, enter the address of the museum you wish to visit and create a new circle in a different color.
