JERSEY CITY, N.J. | The New Jersey City University (NJCU) Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences has announced the opening of the NJCU Earth Museum on the second floor of the Science Building on campus.
This museum will serve NJCU students, staff, and faculty as well as the local community — including K-12 schools — by providing an educational opportunity to learn about the history and environment of Earth. The museum will be open Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
According to Dr. Hun Bok Jung, Chair of the Earth and Environmental Sciences department, the museum will provide an educational opportunity to explore the history and environment of Earth through various displays and exhibits of minerals, rocks, fossils and other earth materials. The museum will also show science documentaries and Hollywood movies on natural disasters, environmental pollution, sustainability and global climate change.
