Connecticut Innovates!

November 6, 2016 @ 8:00 am - March 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Exhibit runs November 11, 2016 to March 25, 2017

Innovation. The word is used to describe the creation of new ideas, new concepts, and new things – but is something innovative just because it is new, or because it changes society?

Here in Connecticut, there are hundreds of stories of people changing our world through their inventions.

The exhibition Connecticut Innovates! – Presented by Connecticut Innovations at the Connecticut Historical Society explores those stories, asking “Why Connecticut?” What was it about the environment, people and resources that existed in the past and still exist today that has led Connecticut to be a hot-spot of innovation?

After learning the stories of why things were created, how they came to be, and their impact on society, visitors and participants will be inspired to conceive—and perhaps create—something innovative themselves.
