CCAT Prepping Middle School Students for STEM Success

Recently, I spent time visiting with some very high-achieving students from the Timothy Edwards Middle School in South Windsor, who participated in the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology's Young Manufacturers Academy--a free summer program that is open to all students entering grades 7 and 8 in the fall.

I have seldom seen a classroom--in the middle of summer no less!--so full of completely engaged students, who were clearly enjoying working on Science Technology Engineering and Math geared programs and projects.

When I visited these young women and men were working with computer software to remotely control robots from their laptops.

I was so impressed by how much fun the students were having with what could very well lead to a serious and important career in advanced manufacturing down the road.

The staff at CCAT, including their summer interns, ran an amazing program this summer and I urge parents to check out CCAT's website and plan ahead for next year!
