Science is fundamental, and on Sunday, September 26, 2010, it was free to the public at Monmouth County Library Headquarters, 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The New Jersey Center for the Book and Monmouth County Library invited the public to participate in a program featuring astronomy, physics and robotics that will launch a month-long focus on the excitement of science.
Former astronaut Bob Cenker was the featured speaker during the Sunday, September 26, program. Participants in the program included Mike Centrella, Phil Burkholder, Mike Lemonick, Fred Carl, Jim Raleigh and representatives of StarLab.
Exhibits and programs were provided by the Marine Academy of Science and Technology, High Technology High School, Biotechnology High School and Health Sciences High School. The Boy Scout Council of Monmouth County will sponsor programs and badges in science.
The mission of the Science is FUNdamental program initiative is “to underscore the importance of science literacy in today’s environment,” according to Renee B. Swartz, who chairs both the NJ Center for the Book and the Monmouth County Library Commission. All programs are free and open to the public.
