@ Discovery: Now Open: Energy Network
Sponsored by and developed in partnership with Energize CT, Energy Network is a new interactive exhibit at Discovery Museum that features hands-on activities that demonstrate what energy is, ways to harness, use, and conserve energy, and offer a great opportunity for STEM learning and family fun.
In December we were grateful to open our latest exhibit leaders from United Illuminating and Eversource, Mayor Joe Ganim, State Representatives Joe Gresko, Ezequiel Santiago, Charlie Stallworth, and Jack Hennessy, Museum Board and staff members, and students and staff from the Inter-District Discovery Magnet School.
