NASA @ My Library

As part of our NASA@ My Library partnership, we are participating in the Oceans of Possibilities theme for the summer of 2022. Did you know that while 12 people have walked on the moon, only 3 have traveled to the deepest part of the ocean? This summer, K-6 children are invited to participate in a variety of ocean-related activities by registering for Oceans in Motion, which will meet every Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. from June 22 through August 10. See the full list of activities and register for any or all of them at tinyurl.com/OceansNB.

In July we will have two space-related programs in anticipation of the first images expected from the James Webb Space Telescope. These programs are for all ages, including teens and adults:
(1.) Create a nebula in a jar on July 9 at 2:00 p.m. Register at tinyurl.com/NebulaJar
(2.) Paint a nebula and participate in a group art project on July 30 at 2:00 p.m. Register at tinyurl.com/PaintSpace.

On August 13 we will end our celebration of oceans with a Marine Science Fair, presented by graduate students from the Rutgers University Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences. There will be a variety of interactive stations that will be enjoyed by all–children, teens, and adults! Register at tinyurl.com/MarineFair.
