Tell Me Something Good About Connecticut December 10th, 2019

December 10, 2019



STEM is the future. I’m talking about science, technology, engineering and math – S – T – E – M – and giving our students solid foundations in those STEM areas is going to help ensure they’ll be ready to take their places in the jobs of tomorrow. After all, just about every career you can think of requires some knowledge of technology, and when it comes to those areas our state’s education system stands out.


You know what they say, “there’s no place like home for the holidays,” and Connecticut sure has its fair share of places to make you feel right at home. This includes historic homes that get all dressed up for the season and invite guests inside to enjoy their decorated displays. Some even include guided tours, live reenactments and other festive activities. 
We'll tell you about a few to consider!
