Sand Lab - Oceans to go!

On Friday, March 24th, Berkeley Heights students will be visited by the NJ Sea Grant Consortium (NJSC). NJSC operates under the mission of promoting the wise use of New Jersey’s marine and coastal resources. Students will learn where sand comes from, what it is made from and how it gets to the Jersey Shore. A laboratory will be set up on campus and students will use microscopes and hand lenses to investigate sand samples from near and far. “Make and take” activities include sand wheels, sand art, and sand cards.
