Triple Helix Promotes STEM Learning At East Hartford Middle School

Triple Helix CEO Jason Bittner presented the value of a STEM education to about 60 East Hartford Middle School students today. It is part of a tour of local CT middle and high schools that Triple Helix has done the past few years to promote a Triple Helix-developed program called Free Range Kids.

Free Range Kids is a program intended to inform kids about the merits of learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). It emphasizes learning by doing and by encouraging kids to be thinkers and tinkerers, unafraid of getting their hands a little dirty in order to discover fascinating things. This learning by discovery process encourages students to disassemble things and generally figure out how they work through observation and experimentation. It’s a process that most professional engineers today followed when they were kids.

Middle and high schools in the Hartford area that would be interested in a visit by Triple Helix to explain the Free Range Kids program are encouraged to contact us by either phone or email. 860.490.3488, info@3xcorp.com.
