Programs

Crater Creations

Crater Creations Activity Photo

 

Join the staff of the Rutgers Geology Museum to learn about meteorites, how craters are made, and have a chance to make and measure your own crater! Activity followed by a hands-on, space-themed craft and time to “Ask the Geologist.” This program is recommended for children up to 4th grade.

 

 

Mars Rover Racing

Mars Rover Activity

 

Join the staff of the Rutgers Geology Museum for an interactive activity to learn how scientists communicate with and pilot the Mars Rover from over 140 million miles away! Activity followed by a hands-on, space-themed craft and time to “Ask the Geologist.” This program is recommended for children in 5th grade and above.


**The rover activity requires some prior setup and floor space. We recommend either a hallway and a separate room or one room with some type of divider/partition to separate the two participating groups of children so they cannot see what the other group is doing.**
