Customizable Services And Solutions For Your Business, Nonprofit, Or Classroom
CSTL is not just a great place for students to learn, play, and engage with science and nature. While one part of our mission is to provide Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.) education directly to the youth here at Tanglewood Preserve, at CSTL we also strive to assist corporations, businesses, and nonprofit organizations nationwide in their efforts to provide S.T.E.M. educational programs to individuals in their communities.
As part of our corporate signature programs, we have worked in close partnership with organizations like NBC, the Discovery Channel, Applied Materials, NYSERDA, the National Science Teachers’ Association, Nassau County Parks and Recreation, the US Department of Education, and the US Department of Energy, to name a few.
CSTL also offers professional development opportunities for teachers, on a range of topics including classroom management, STEM integration, STEM content, and more.
If you want to build an educational exhibit, we can help with exhibit design as well! Exhibits we have worked on in the past include Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, Battle of the Dinosaurs, Amazing Animals, and more.
