Discovery Academy


 Below is a live webcam of our new facility in Wethersfield.  It will refresh every 60 seconds.  

CREC’s Discovery Academy focuses on developing strong foundational knowledge for students in four interrelated domains of STEM literacy: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Students learn by conducting investigations, gathering and using information, and solving problems with scientific ways of thinking and technology as tools. Engaging children in these practices helps them to develop a deep understanding of the world around them.
