Connecticut Science Center, Inc.
Engineering Exploration Afterschool Program Pilot
The Connecticut Science Center (CSC) will develop a week-long, creativity-based afterschool Engineering Exploration Program for elementary school students. Combining the connections to state science frameworks found in CSC classroom and extended day programs with the engaging, cumulative experiences of a week of CSC vacation camp, the Engineering Exploration Program will provide a fun and supportive environment for students to try novel ideas and approaches to real world problems. We will pilot this program with community schools in the Hartford Public School District. Participants and their families will participate in a culminating family visit to CSC.
