HFT Sponsors Connecticut Science Center Programs for Hartford Students

There are several opportunities to book grant-funded student programs with the Connecticut Science Center, at no cost to Hartford Public Schools.  These programs are provided with support from your Hartford Federation of Teachers.

All student programs for Grades K-12 are eligible. This includes our new NGSS-aligned Virtual Programs and our Virtual STEM Career Showcases for older students. These programs are designed to accommodate learners in the classroom and at home and include a short, supportive package for educators to take the content further.

Please use the booking link to request programs. Where it says payment information at the end of the online form, it asks “Is your trip be funded by a grant or contract?” check YES and indicate Hartford Public Schools.
