Connecticut Invents! Returns for Summer 2007

The Museum of Connecticut History at the Connecticut State Library will again offer its hands-on education program Connecticut Invents! to libraries throughout Connecticut. The program, best suited for children entering 4th or 5th grade, is a hands-on exploration of famous Connecticut inventors and their inventions. Participants will discover a sampling of the many inventions that have come from Connecticut over the past 200 years and get to become inventors themselves. Last summer nearly 500 kids took part in this fun, educational and dynamic program. Best of all this 60-90 minute program is offered free of charge to all public libraries in Connecticut! The program will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday’s beginning July 5th and ending August 23rd. To learn more contact Patrick Smith, Curator of Education at 860-757-6693 or

  1. Can’t wait to see your program next week. When I saw it last year in Shelton it was great. The kids really had a good time inventing and building bridges.

  2. We offered this program during last year’s summer reading at the Southington Library & Museum. The children really enjoyed themselves!
