Center for Innovation and Design

CID: An Aerospace Experience to Mars

Wallingford Public Schools has developed a partnership with the Victorian Space Science Education Centre (VSSEC) in Melbourne, Australia. The Center for Innovation and Design - An Aerospace Experience to Mars recently launched at Mary G. Fritz Elementary School. The Center will be for all students in our district and around Connecticut. Initially, students in grade 5 will gain access to the center through their Computer Science and Science classes. Working with coding and droids, the students will begin their exploration of Mars. The Board of Education did provide initial start-up funds last June to paint the space and install new flooring. Additional funding is being sought from businesses from across the State of Connecticut.
