The Importance of Accessibility 

Dear Friends,

What is centripetal force? This is one of many physics-related questions that players are asked on the exhibit panels that dot CMEE’s newly-opened miniature golf course. Rather than instantly providing the explanation, CMEE encourages children to deduce the answer by playing the hole. On the “Loop de Jour” hole, they discover that centripetal force is what keeps the ball traveling the loop and not fall to the ground. While playing the course, children will observe an array of physics and mathematical concepts in action, including potential energy, friction, angles, gravity, and inertia.

Summer @ CMEE

Get To Know CMEE Educator Liz Bard

With our summer workshops quickly filling up, we wanted to introduce CMEE Educator Liz Bard. In her final year of Long Island University's Early Education Master's Program, Ms. Bard is returning for her second summer season here at the museum. The Center Moriches native will be teaching "CMEE Play! In The Kitchen" during July and August 

To say she's enthusiastic would be an understatement. "Cooking's one of my favorite hobbies," she said. "I'm excited to share it with parents and a classroom full of future Top Chefs." This season, kids are in for a special treat as the produce comes straight from Balsam Farms. "I think the farm-to-table concept is very important when teaching nutrition and healthy eating habits. By making it fun, I think kids are more likely to bring that message home." The dish she's most excited about introducing to her students? "Zuccinni Noodle Pad Thai."
