DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION & ACCESSIBILITY
The Connecticut Science Center inspires lifelong learning through interactive and innovative experiences that explore our changing world through science. Like our planet and our universe, our region is rich in diversity, and we embrace those differences through our governance, in our organization, and in our work and among those we serve. We recognize that science, innovation and technological progress rely on and best serve humanity with many perspectives. As our society and economy and way of life become ever more reliant on broad engagement in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), we strive to connect people of all backgrounds and orientation with STEM. We respect and value the scope of human diversity in its many dimensions. We strive to be welcoming and responsive to all those who engage with the Connecticut Science Center, and all those with whom we engage and seek to engage. These ideals are to be manifest in the Connecticut Science Center’s mission, vision and strategic focus and planning. They are to be foundational, core attributes of the Science Center’s work and workings, considered routinely as a significant measure of the satisfaction of the Science Center’s purpose throughout its culture, organization and activities.
The Connecticut Science Center is an influential and exemplary leader in creating equitable engagement and access to STEM learning opportunities and STEM careers. We realize this vision with the proficiency and experience of our diverse team, supported by research and insight from our community and partners within the STEM Ecosystem. We share the advantages that STEM affords to individuals and communities as beneficiaries.
We want everyone to be able to enjoy the Science Center. That’s why we are lowering the volume and dimming the lights for our friends with sensory disabilities. All who will benefit from a quieter environment are invited as our special guests for the day! Sensory Friendly Day is presented by the Miracle League of Connecticut. Tickets are $14 online, in advance or $16.95 at the door (1:1 aides are always free). For more information, contact our Group Sales Department at email@example.com or call (860) 520-2112.
