The Board of Trustees and staff of the Science Museum of Long Island were saddened to hear of the passing of Celia Lo Pinto December 4, 2009. Celia was a founder of the museum in 1963 and helped shepherd this institution from its humble beginnings from a room in the rear of a bakery in Roslyn to its current home at Leeds Pond Preserve. The efforts of Celia and others have enabled us to pass on science to thousands of children, of which many are now practicing careers in the medical and physical science.
Thank you Celia,
John Loret Ph.D. Dsc
