Whether you’re a self-described science nerd or simply love Long Island, there’s a lot to be excited about at the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, home to the only remaining lab where Nikola Tesla (the inventor of alternating current electricity and neon lighting) conducted research. The Shoreham facility is being developed into a science-focused Center, housing both a museum about Long Island’s rich scientific opportunities past, present, and future, and a business incubator for fledgling companies engaged in scientific research.

The business community recently enjoyed cocktails and networking at a CMM-hosted celebration of the Tesla Science Center, as attendees explored a special exhibit at the Ward Melville Cultural Center dedicated to Nikola Tesla’s work. At the event, CMM Managing Partner Joe Campolo announced that Softheon, Inc. will make an unprecedented donation of one million dollars to support the Tesla Science Center and solidify Long Island’s spot in scientific history.

“It’s an honor to support the Tesla Science Center and its celebration of the important work of Nikola Tesla,” Sayan said. “His work and innovation have made an impact on my life, and I’m very happy that Softheon is supporting such an important initiative on Long Island.”
