Michael Salvarezza, Christopher Weaver, The RMS Titanic: Her Final Days History,
Media- Photography,
Science
On a cold April night in 1912, the magnificent new luxury liner R.M.S. Titanic struck an iceberg as she was making her way towards New York on her maiden voyage from England. In a few short hours, she sank beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic, taking with her the lives of more than 1,500 people. The tragedy shocked the world and, through the years, the legend of this story has continued to grow. Seventy three years after the sinking, the wreck of the Titanic was discovered 2 ½ miles below the surface by an intrepid group of Oceanographers using state of the art technology. Join Eco-Photo Explorers as they recall the tragic history of the R.M.S. Titanic and the exciting search for her remains. The show will also feature discussions on the technology used to find the wreck and will examine the current controversy over the recovery of artifacts from this site.

Smith, Dr. Andrew J. How To Read the Woods (AKA Landscape Archaeology) History,
Nature- Environment,
Science
Into this century what are now park woodlands were inhabited by small communities. As one travels these areas, evidence of former habitations can be seen--evidence such as foundations, stone walls, wells fruit trees, trash heaps, latrine pits, and introduced plant species are common and obvious. But most people don't realize what they are looking at when they see it. This show is an introduction to what is actually a form of archaeology which explains to those who frequently hike or otherwise are in the forest and fields, how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature. Can also be done in conjunction with a field trip.
$201- $350
Long Island Science Center, The Place for Learning RAINFOREST TREASURES Nature- Environment,
Science
Take a journey through a tropical rainforest to discover this unique ecosystem and its effect on the world. Students will learn about the layers, animals, plants and products using a variety of unusual and rare hands-on materials. A slide show of researchers in the field and actual photos of the Amazon and Australian rainforests emphasize the importance of this resource. The experience can culminate in a visit with our ball python and Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches when possible. Pre-K - 6th
$201- $350
Sears, Susan Slime and Goo: Polymer Chemistry Science
A hands on science program; What exactly is a polymer? Mix some mystery substances to make 'Slimy matter' and 'Gooey Worms' and/or instant snow. This fun activity uses non-toxic household materials. Older students (middle school) will experiment with different recipes to see how they can change the results whilst younger students (grades 2 - 5) have fun with a simple method of making slime.
$101- $200
Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Keep In Touch (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
**Keep in Touch** Children will learn how they understand the world with their sense of touch and will also emphasize that some objects are safe to touch while others are not. The preschoolers will be presented with the challenge of identifying a variety of objects using only their sense of touch. They will also experiment with an interesting and innovative material to model their very own creation. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
$101- $200
Thompson, Liz Bats of Belize Nature- Animals,
Science
The 98 bat species that call Belize home represent some of the most interesting bats found anywhere on the planet. Learn about fishing bats, tent-making bats, colorful fruit bats, and the most enigmatic bats of all—the vampire bats.

Michael Salvarezza, Christopher Weaver, Frozen Fins: The Art and Science of Ice Diving Media- Photography,
Nature- Other,
Science
When the weather turns cold and the local waters turn to ice, many divers pack up their dive gear and wait for the return of summer. Some hasten its arrival with a trip to warmer climates while winter maintains its grip on the north. But the arrival of winter does not need to mean the end of local diving. In this program, you will learn the techniques, equipment requirements and reasons for safely venturing below the ice in one of diving’s most challenging, and rewarding, activities: Ice Diving. Join Eco-Photo Explorers as they explain the “hows” and “whys” of ice diving and introduce you to some of the best places to dive beneath the ice.
$201- $350
Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Mad Mixtures (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
**Mad Mixtures** An excellent introduction to mixtures and the science of chemistry! Interactive and hands-on activities will help the children understand that chemistry is the science of mixing things together. We will use chemistry to mix up different colors and learn to make our own dough! These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
$101- $200

$101- $200
Long Island Science Center, The Place for Learning DINOSAUR DIMENSIONS Nature- Other,
Science
How big were the dinosaurs? Did the dinosaurs care for their young?
