Legrand, Stanley Black & Decker, and LEGO Systems, Inc. Sponsor Area’s First Mini-Maker Faire
Three of Connecticut’s most innovative manufacturers are supporting the first Greater Hartford Mini-Maker Faire on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at Tunxis Community College in Farmington.
Legrand, Stanley Black & Decker, and LEGO Systems, Inc. are the corporate sponsors of this first celebration of innovation produced by CBIA on behalf of the Connecticut College of Technology’s Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing, which provided funding from the National Science Foundation.
Fifty exhibitors will participate in the free, family-friendly event, from 10 am to 5 pm at the college.
The Mini Maker Faire spotlights the ingenuity and craftsmanship of Connecticut makers of all kinds. Called the “Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth,” community-based Maker Faires are taking place all over the world.
“Maker Faires inspire creativity to turn ideas into reality,” said Greg Kozniewski, marketing communications manager, Electrical Wiring Systems, Legrand.
“Some of the most innovative technologies that exist today started with a small idea that was further developed – and many became accepted as part of our daily lives. We’re very excited to support that type of thinking in Connecticut.”
Among the innovative types of projects to be showcased at the Greater Hartford Mini-Maker Faire will be robotics, 3D printing, musical instruments, wearable art, radios, paper creations, mobility resources, mosquito-fighting devices, and many more ingenious inventions.
“We are happy to play a role in bringing the Maker Faire movement to Hartford,” said Tim Perra, vice president, communications for Stanley Black & Decker.
“This initiative is inspiring and we’re excited to help encourage the next generation of makers and inventors.”
Maker Faire attendees will be encouraged to participate in at least some part of the making process themselves at many of the exhibits.
LEGO Systems will invite makers of all ages to build a custom LEGO creation and then place it within a brick-built map of the state of Connecticut.
“By encouraging Maker Faire attendees to participate in this communal LEGO build, we hope to demonstrate how easy it is to be a maker and to explore their inner inventor all through the hands-on fun of LEGO play,” said Michael McNally, senior director, brand relations for LEGO Systems.
“We are thrilled to support the community surrounding our company’s U.S. headquarters and the makers of Connecticut with this building experience at the inaugural Greater Hartford Mini-Maker Faire.”
“Maker Faires are sparking a renewal of interest all over the world in the joy of making things both for fun and to meet needs,” says Karen Wosczyna-Birch, executive director of Connecticut’s College of Technology and the Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing.
“We believe that the first Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire will help encourage a new generation of talented and creative manufacturers in Connecticut.”

Board of Regents for Higher Education Adopts Program to Make Transfer Students More Marketable, Sooner
To hear WNPR’s news segment which includes interview with Tunxis Dean of Academic Affairs Michael Rooke, Ph.D., visit http://wnpr.org/post/program-will-let-connecticut-students-earn-one-degree-while-pursuing-another .
The reverse transfer program will allow community college students who transfer to CSCU universities to complete their associate degrees
(Hartford, CT) — Recognizing that higher attainment rates are required to meet Connecticut’s workforce needs, the Board of Regents for Higher Education (BOR) today voted to adopt a reverse transfer program for students enrolled in Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) institutions. Under the reverse transfer program, students who have transferred from one of the 12 CSCU community colleges to Eastern, Western, Central or Southern Connecticut State Universities or Charter Oak State College, will be able to earn their associate degree while they pursue their bachelor’s degree. To date, 16 states across the United States have launched or are launching these innovative programs.
“An associate degree is an important milestone in a student’s education and a valuable credential to have on their resumes for job hunting and career advancement,” said Estela Lopez, CSCU Interim Provost and Senior Vice President, Academic and Student Affairs. “Our hope is that a reverse transfer opportunity will provide students the chance to complete their associate degrees and give them the confidence to continue their studies toward a bachelor’s degree within our system.”
Connecticut’s reverse transfer program provides substantial benefits for eligible students: It enhances employment and earnings opportunities by making it possible for transfers to receive an associate degree without having to wait for completion of their baccalaureate; it makes them more marketable in the workforce sooner, by giving them a completion credential for their resume; it gives those students who, for whatever reason, are not able to complete a baccalaureate program, a leg up into the workforce; and it promotes career advancement at students’ existing jobs.
To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:
Have earned at least 45 CSCU community college credits before transferring to a CSCU university
Have transferred within the two years preceding their application for reverse transfer
Remain enrolled and matriculated in a baccalaureate program at the university
Complete a minimum of 15 credits at the university, as required by their associate degree program
During the first year of the program beginning this fall (academic year 2015/2016), students will be able to apply in October 2015 and February 2016. Each year thereafter, there will be only one application deadline in February. (This approach is being taken to provide for more efficient management during the first year.) There are approximately 1,000 students per year who may be eligible to earn their associate degree under this program.
Eligible students will be notified of the reverse transfer program via email in the fall. Those who are interested in applying will be asked to complete a reverse transfer application form, and have the university send a completed transcript request to the community college they attended. Following completion of a degree audit by the community college, the college will notify students of their completion status, and of any requirements needed for graduation. Once all requirements are met, conferral of students’ associate degrees will be scheduled for colleges’ next conferral date.
A reverse transfer website will be created this summer at www.ct.edu with more information about the program and the forms needed to apply.
