NASA Family Night -- Next Week

Focus on Aerospace Technology: How do engineers design, build and test airplanes?

For an answer to that fascinating question, plan to join us for the next NASA Family Night scheduled for Wednesday evening, January 24th in the Woodbury Jr/Sr High School’s old cafeteria.

From 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Woodbury School district science and math teachers will help students and their parents explore various aerospace technology concepts. They will learn about the actual measurement tools used by engineers and scientists during the process of developing, designing, building and testing airplanes.

During the evening, participants will also move among three different learning stations where they will view a video on the history of flight. Other stations will engage participants in a hands-on measurement activity and a computer-based simulation from the NASA website.

NASA Family Nights are part of the NASA Explorer School grant program. Woodbury School District is the only school system in the state of New Jersey to have received this unique honor.

For more information, please contact Colleen Fitzgerald or Antoinette Allen at 856-853-0123.
