What is it?
In 2004, the New Brunswick Free Public Library was awarded a grant by NASA through the Initiative to Develop Education through Astronomy and Space Science (IDEAS) Grant Program. With this funding we implemented the Exploring the Universe @ Your Library program. Exploring the Universe was a hands-on, inquiry based science program for children. Robert Belvin, the library’s director, and Drs. Ted Williams and Tad Pryor, professors in the Physics and Astronomy Department of Rutgers University, led our program to create educational, inquiry-based activities that let students engage as scientists.
