The Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium entreats attendees of all ages to sit back, look up, and gaze upon constellations and other light-based spectacles. Astronomy shows entertain younger audiences during afternoon showings, with summer gems such as Attack of the Space Pirates or Solar System Odyssey. On weekends, the staff caters to older crowds with laser concerts with music from bands such as Coldplay, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd. After the show, guests can stop into a gift shop filled to the brim with science, astronomy, and star charts, along with freeze-dried astronaut foods such as ice cream or apple wedges. With an eye toward community outreach, the Planetarium also hosts group shows and field-trip programs. The crew also regularly tricks stars into attending the third grade by dragging them to schools via the Starlab Portable Planetarium’s inflatable dome.

Renowned for rambling country classics such as "18 Wheels and A Dozen Red Roses" and "Where've You Been," Grammy Award–winning Kathy Mattea brings the soot-streaked tunes of her 2008 album Coal to the spacious 34,000-square-foot hall of Schaeffer Auditorium. Coal is a meticulously picked collection of songs that pays tribute to Mattea's richly detailed coal-mining heritage in Appalachian West Virginia. Enjoy this cavernous gamut of musical emotion in one of Schaeffer's 850 seats, gazing out the looming, arched windows at bountiful foliage, or simply directing complete attention to the powerful songs being performed on-stage. Melodious motorists can take advantage of the auditorium’s free parking and speedy shuttle service.

Eye Level Learning Center's tutoring equation is like a math problem its students might study: 1 teaching method + 3 subjects x 16 countries = 2.5 million enrollments worldwide. First developed in South Korea in 1976, Eye Level takes its name from their desire to see things from a student's point of view. Educators customize lessons to fit each pupil, and its self-directed method allows students to move at their own pace.
Children taking mathematics lessons build upon a basic foundation, then learn how to apply critical thinking to math concepts such as geometry and measurement to solve problems. English-session students learn basic grammar skills as well as advanced reading comprehension and writing skills.
Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at LearningRx eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
