Dime Bank Foundation recently awarded $2,250 to the Children’s Museum of West Hartford to help support seven STEM educational programs for K-8 homeschooling families living in the New London and Groton areas. Each program will feature hands-on science and environment-based activities, as well as provide access to unique assets and learning opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere in the region.
