On the afternoon of Wednesday, January 27th, we welcomed a group of Hartford students from the Dream Chasers Program to the lab. The students were lead on a tour with demos of current and ongoing projects. Thanks for sharing your time and enthusiasm for knowledge with us!
The Dream Chasers Program is a partner program of the Hartford Youth Scholars and Legacy Foundation and counsels 20 incredibly bright yet underserved middle schoolers in Hartford to reach past their current situations. The program holds individual consultations with each student every month to talk about long-term dreams through short-term goals to help set them on a path toward achieving those dreams. Lead by a group of intrepid teachers, business professionals, and community leaders the students embark on different educational trips each month to introduce them to new experiences and career opportunities that simply don’t exist in their neighborhoods.
