The Long Island Science Center is open for holiday break this week in its new location at Summerwind Square, 40 Peconic Avenue, Riverhead.
The special preview hours are from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The preview includes the science center’s augmented-reality sandbox, illumination station, Keva building blocks, 3D coloring, an interactive Leonardo da Vinci exhibition and more.
Admission to the L.I. Science Center this week is $10 — or free admission if you join the organization’s mailing list.
The L.I. Science Center in 2016 moved to Rocky Point after it sold the West Main Street, Riverhead building that had been its longtime home.
Earlier this year, BNB Bank announced a major sponsorship of the organization, which would inhabit the Summerwind Square ground-floor space vacated by the bank when it opened a downtown Riverhead branch on West Main Street.
The science center would have over 2,000 square feet of exhibit space in the new location, L.I. Science Center president Laurence Oxman told RiverheadLOCAL in June.
BNB Bank has leased the space through December 2019.
Oxman said at the time the science center would continue to search for a permanent home in downtown Riverhead or possibly Riverside. The group is looking to either buy an existing building or construct a new one, he said.
