An event highlight is the Drone Demonstrations by Warren Community College. The College has been building a nationally acclaimed Drone/Robotics/AI program - all about Uncrewed vehicles that include land, sea and sky! The program affords students the opportunity to complete certification programs, obtain their Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot license, get a solid Associates degree and continue further degrees at top schools like Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. 


Area 57 will also feature Combat Robots, organized by the newly formed Garden State Combat Robotics League. The League is quickly growing and with a serious competition arena, build with the support of Warren Community College and Robot competitors are traveling to be a part of our competitions. 

Time travel with Autocades mobile arcade and their space and science-fiction themed classics.  Blast space bugs in Galaga, stop the alien invasion in Defender, avoid the assault in Asteroids, and for MAY THE 4TH, take down the Death Star on the Atari Star Wars space shooter with its iconic vector graphics and learn the ways of the Jedi on the Star Wars video pinball machine. ($5 wristband to play.)

Visit Moon Base: Launch Pad 57 and build a rocket! Our rocket scientist, Henry Skirbst, will help your child build one of three style rockets (one appropriately easy enough for your child.) Then they will take to the launch field to see who can fire the furthest! Take the Warren County's Timeline of Technology Scavenger Hunt Challenge. Learn all about Warren County’s past, present and future technological revolutions while you search for clues in a scavenger hunt. 


Of course, there will be a few hot air balloons, later in the day. Ask your questions about How a Balloon Works with RE/MAX, suspected alien Fred G Monster special shape hot air balloon, and tethered rides, as weather allows!
