PRINCETON, NJ: Martians who can send a fleet of spaceships to Earth and nearly destroy the world with heat beams and giant tripod vehicles surely had excellent training science and engineering.  To encourage more interest in science and technology to solve today’s global challenges, the David Sarnoff Library is holding a contest for design of the logo marking its events during the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’ radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. These events on Friday-Saturday, October 24-25, will help raise funds for the Library’s educational programs, culminating in the Saturday night recreation of the broadcast in Sarnoff Corporation’s Auditorium next to the Library at 201 Washington Road, Princeton.

  • Martian(s)
  • Education
  • 70th Anniversary or 1938-2008
  • Grover’s Mill, New Jersey
