Virtual Programs

We are continuing to support STEM learning outside the classroom as well as provide the community with resources to understand issues pertaining to the current pandemic.

During this time we have implemented a number of virtual initiatives including live interactive STEM workshops, a free Pre-K "Little Sparks" STEM program, Online Science Fair, weekly Saturday "Maker Spotlights" featuring guest innovators around the US exploring their passion and engaging the community in a hands-on project and opportunities for volunteering "virtually" by participating in Citizen Science Month activities. 

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 Live and Online workshops.
