Teen Innovation at the Connecticut Science Center 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.
Teen Innovation is made possible by major support from The Gawlicki Family Foundation, and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Additional supporters include Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Stanley D. and Hinda N. Fisher Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Cox Charities, People’s United Community Foundation, and Berkshire Bank Foundation.
