Teen Innovation provides youth, primarily from under-resourced communities in Connecticut, with opportunities to develop problem-solving skills, gain confidence, and explore STEM career and college pathways.
Teen Innovation Ambassadors spend six weeks over the summer creating original programs and exhibits that teach others about STEM.
In addition to the program in Hartford, the Science Center runs the Teen Innovation Program in Danbury in partnership with the Danbury Library.
Teen Innovation is made possible by major support from the Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation, the Boehringer Ingelheim Cares Foundation, the Dorr Foundation, and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
Applications for summer 2017 have closed.
To be eligible to apply for the Teen Innovation in Summer 2018, teens must complete one full year of the Science Center’s Investigate! program.
