Some 5,500 straws, 30 rolls of tape, 400 pencils, 7 cheeseburgs, 2 hot dogs, 1 jerk chicken sandwich and 1 bee sting later the Connecticut Invents summer program tour has ended! I visited 22 towns, covered over 1,500 miles and taught 407 kids about our our state’s inventive heritage. It was a great summer with some memorable moments and programs and my first TV appearance with CT Invents. I’m headed on vacation now, when I get back i’ll give a better account of my travels and travails on the road. Til then, happy inventing!!
