ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Minds in Motion is a very popular, half-day student enrichment program which features hands-on, interactive, high-interest workshops. Both parents and students who attended the event last year said they couldn’t wait to come back! (Minds in Motion is a signature enrichment program of the CT Association for the Gifted.)
Since its start in 2014, Milford Minds In Motion has attracted nearly 400 kids, offering workshops including Shadow Puppet Circus, American Sign Language, Yoga, Song Writing Workshop, Modern Dance, Junior Vet, Acting From the Inside Out, LEGO Mindstorms Robotics, 3D Architecture, Engineering a Kaleidoscope, and many more.
While the kids enjoy their classes, parents are encouraged to attend a keynote address given by prominent education leaders. Our past presenters have included:
