HARTFORD – Manchester’s Bennet Academy students took a field trip to the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford this week to learn about climate change, Connecticut’s natural flora and fauna, and historical scientific advancements achieved in our state. State Representative Mark Tweedie (R-Manchester), member of the Legislature’s Environment and Energy & Technology Committees, took some time before session on Tuesday to join the tour, meet and work with the students.
“Connecticut built this museum and science center for all of you to enjoy, learn from and create at,” said Rep. Tweedie. “As a state we are very proud of the ground-breaking innovations born here, as well as the research that continues every day. I hope you are inspired by what you see today!”
The Connecticut Science Center has galleries sponsored by a variety of Connecticut-based corporations and organizations, such as United Technologies, Travelers, Stanley Black & Decker, the Petit Family Foundation, Eversource, United Healthcare, Aetna, Hartford Healthcare, Energize Connecticut and WFSB Channel 3.
