PHS Group with Participants

Plainville High School once again hosted the "Go Baby Go" event December 6th & 7th, during which toy ride-on cars for children with special needs were modified, refurbished, and presented to local families. The Go Baby Go program was originally founded by the University of Delaware, and has been held at Central Connecticut State University. The two day workshop hosted at Plainville High School included Central Connecticut State University students, working together with Plainville High School and Middle School of Plainville students, under the direction of the Technology Education faculty members from all three schools and Rosie Flammang a physical therapist from the Connecticut Children's Medical Center, to adapt the toy cars for local special needs children. The children were fitted for the cars during the second day of the workshop in the STEM Lab at Plainville High School. Five children received modified cars this year. The Go Baby Go event cars were donated through Central Connecticut State University's partnership with Fisher-Price.
