GSE Participation at Rutgers Day
Rutgers Graduate School of Education (GSE) is hosting three interactive learning programs for children during this year’s Rutgers Day, which will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10:00am – 4:00pm. Throughout the day families can tell stories with puppets, participate in multi-lingual story telling, and engage in hands-on activities with GSE faculty, staff, and students.
Rutgers Day offers a wide variety of programs across three campuses for attendees to engage with the Rutgers community. Scheduled programs include a parade down College Avenue, the School of Engineering Science Fair on the Busch campus, and a chance to visit the farm animals on the Cook/Douglass campus. Attendees can enjoy outdoor performances stages, hands-on activities, and games for children of all ages.
