Liberty Science Center- Abbott Partnership Program for Families

Hoboken is an Abbott District and students enrolled in the public school system enjoy the opportunity to participate in some exciting and free programs. Since 1998, Liberty Science Center, in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Education, has undertaken one of the most unique and extensive science education projects found anywhere in the nation. Through yearly funding from the New Jersey State government, Liberty Science Center provides students, teachers and families from New Jersey's 31 Abbott school districts with a menu of onsite, offsite and online programs that address the science education needs of these traditionally under-served communities.
