MCCD offers a series of presentations by experts and executives which have been used in local schools to supplement their academic STEM and Enrichment programs. The presentations are designed to inspire students by providing career advice and enhance classroom instruction with real-world experience.
In addition to our programs, one-on-one and small group student mentoring offer encouragement, friendship, wisdom and perspective.
MCCD is also privileged to work closely with students participating in the Invention Convention competition.
“I am thrilled to have the MCCD members working each week with our students and look forward to a lasting partnership for our STEM and Renzulli programs.

Our Enrichment sessions expose students to a wide variety of career options. Excitement grows as they listen to our speakers and participate in hands-on learning. MCCD has delivered more than fifty different sessions in two school systems including subjects such as surgery, geology, environmentally sound architecture, astronomy, fashion and logos.

2016 Invention Convention Finalists
Each year MCCD members help students at two Lyme-Old Lyme schools prepare their entries for the Invention Convention competition. MCCD works with students from the start of their projects seeing them through to completion. MCCD members help to select the projects that advance to State level competition.
“We are excited to have such enthusiastic members of the community graciously willing to share their talents and expertise while creating a partnership with the youth from Lyme-Old-Lyme schools.”
