Long Island Children's Museum

Log Number: MA-251569-OMS-22

The Long Island Children’s Museum will implement “STEM4all,” an expansion of its long-standing Westbury STEM Partnership program to all third grade and K–12 special education classes in the Westbury School District. The project team will combine staff working with the Westbury STEM Partnership with staff who manage LICM4all, the museum’s community engagement initiative that serves visitors with disabilities. In collaboration with Teacher Advisory Councils, they will develop, test, and refine STEM learning experiences that reflect appropriate curriculum standards and accommodate multiple languages and abilities. They will also provide professional development sessions for teachers and engage families in STEM learning during special events at elementary schools and the museum. This project will address an ongoing and documented need for comprehensive STEM education in a largely low-income, minority and immigrant-serving school district.
