NASA Education Center:

Georgian Court's Library houses the only NASA Educator Resource Center (ERC) in New Jersey.

NASA established the Educator Resource Center Network in an effort to encourage the teaching of science in the schools and to make quality educational materials available to educators. In addition, the centers provide professional development training to educators in their serving area.

Opened in January 1996, the ERC is open by appointment to any educator, regardless of where they live. There is no fee to use the ERC, nor is there any limit to the number of visits anyone may make. Since the ERC hours vary each session, please call 732-987-2436 for current hours, additional information or to make an appointment.
