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 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. Nine children received modified cars this year. The Go Baby Go event was funded in part by Crowley Auto through a "Drive One for your School" event.
