Check out photos from the newest exhibit, "Broken? Fix it!" at the Long Island Children's Museum in Garden City. The goal is simple: When something breaks, you don't have to throw it away right away and go to the store and replace it with a new one," says Erik Schurink, museum director of exhibits. "Broken? Fix it!" will be at the museum through Jan. 6, 2014.
