Connecticut Science Center
Even before it opened, while still on the drawing boards, the Connecticut Science Center had identified the CIC as one of its educational partners in helping to engage Connecticut students in science and engineering. Now with over 150 hands-on exhibits, a state-of-the-art 3D digital theater, four educational labs, plus daily programs and events, the Connecticut Science Center offers endless exploration for children, teens, and adults.
As a CIC Partner, The Science Center’s Invention Dimension Gallery has a permanent exhibit devoted to CIC’s inventors, showcasing their inventions on a rotating basis throughout the year. The CIC helps to provide materials and expertise for “Make ‘N Take,” an informal activity for the museum’s young visitors to the gallery. With education a strong, joint mission with the CIC, the Science Center provides classrooms for CIC’s Teacher Training Workshops, drawing them to the Science Center as a new, extraordinary educational resource.
