CELC students with Senator Ed Meyer

What a way to learn!

Connecticut Experiential Learning Center (CELC) middle-school students saw and heard first-hand how government works when they spent a day in Hartford, meeting state senators and representatives, attending legislative sessions, observing what it’s like to run the state. Receiving standing ovations from both chambers for their enthusiasm and participation, the day topped off with an ice cream social with the CT Farm Bureau.

CELC gives its students these kinds of experiences regularly, as the most effective way to learn.
