Liberty Science Center's Science Near You Web AppWhere can you dig for fossils, examine shipwrecks’ treasure, and rehabilitate and return injured animals to the wild? New Jersey! Discover all this and more using Science Near You, an innovative web application created by Liberty Science Center.

“We are proud to delight learners of all ages with the excitement of science and technology—and we’re not alone!,” says Paul Hoffman, president and CEO at Liberty Science Center. “From zoos and aquariums to aviation museums and technology clubs, New Jersey offers nearly endless opportunities for families to explore the world of science together.”

Science Near You allows users to enter their address, decide how far they want to travel, choose their favorite topics, and get going! What might they find?
