You have been hired by ABC Toys to design and build new toys but you are not sure how to go about it! Where do you start? All toys - no matter how simple - involve a lot of engineering. Join us for this week-long activity as we discover the design and engineering process of making toys. Learn to use 3D modeling software (Tinkercad), discover simple machines, learn about circuits, examine existing toys to see if you can reverse-engineer them, and explore manufacturing tech like 3D printers, laser-cutters, and vacuum molders. Projects and activities will depend on the age of the participants.

Explore the existence of crocodiles in New Jersey throughout their evolution.

The exhibit delves into the fossil history of crocs in NJ, with preserved croc-like trackways dating back almost 200 million years and a nearly complete skeleton of crocodylian Hyposaurus rogersii, which lived in what is now Gloucester Co., NJ about 65 million years ago. Visitors will also come face-to-face with a six-foot skull reconstruction of Deinosuchus, one of the largest crocodiles to ever live.
