This week’s featured presenter: Cara Musico, Manager of the Novins Planetarium
During this Facebook Live, Cara Muscio will speak with Victoria Buczynski, Marketing and Sales Specialist for the Grunin Center, about the Robert J. Novins Planetarium, their educational offerings, ways students can get involved when we are back on campus, and upcoming virtual events!
Cara Muscio is the Manager at the Robert J. Novins Planetarium. She oversees the creation and presentation of innovative science and entertainment programs for all ages and audiences. Cara has focused on creating engaging, immersive experiences at the Planetarium, such as the Astronomy of Harry Potter Event, where the Planetarium is transformed into the Novins Academy of Wizardry, and students participate in games, activities, and mini-classes while interacting with the Academy’s esteemed (and costumed) staff.
Previously, Cara was a part-time Presenter and Education Coordinator, while teaching undergraduate science courses at several local colleges, including Ocean County College and Georgian Court University. Cara found her passion for education and science literacy in a nearly 20 year environmental career, which started with studying aquatic microrganisms, and culminated in co-founding a grass-roots environmental stewardship organization that is still active today! The Barnegat Bay Shellfish Restoration Program, and its outreach arm ReClam the Bay, have won numerous awards, including an EPA Region 2 Environmental Excellence Award, The Governors Tourism Award, and the National Association of Natural Resource Professionals Innovative Program Award, while teaching tens of thousands of residents and tourists how to protect and improve the bay ecosystem annually.
When Cara isn’t inspiring wonder at the vastness of our universe, she is likely taking or teaching yoga or writing and performing music with friends.
