About TMSC

The Talcott Mountain Science Center provides a vital interface between current scientific principles and technologies as they apply to science education.


Our staff are involved statewide and nationally in curriculum development, teacher inservice and classroom implementations of hands-on real world science.


We advocate ‘STEAM’ (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics), as we integrate science and technology with all aspects of the curriculum.


We work closely with the State Department of Education and partner with science-rich institutions throughout the state. We are members of the Connecticut Science Supervisors Association, CT Science Teachers Association, Earth Science Teachers Association and are a national GLOBE partner.


Our staff have credentials in their respective fields of science and over 100 years of collective teaching experience.
