The Long Island Children's Museum will develop the second phase of the Westbury STEM Partnership program which supports inquiry-based, hands-on STEM learning in the high-need Westbury School District neighboring the museum. By providing students with STEM-based educational experiences early in their education, the museum seeks to create sustained interest in STEM subjects and ultimately broaden the talent pool of students pursuing STEM careers. The Westbury STEM Partnership Phase 2 program will serve all first- and second-grade teachers and students in the school district, serving 830 students and 40 teachers each program year. The program will include expansion to two additional schools, refinement of program elements, and ongoing evaluation.
