Governor Ned Lamont was in Bethel this morning to take part in a Manufacturing Day Event. He delivered remarks at an event celebrating Manufacturing Month hosted by WorkspaceCT, a newly opened joint venture between two of Connecticut’s six regional education service centers. Cooperative Education Services serves the southwest region and EdAdvance serves the northwest region. They are working to promote the success of school districts and their communities. The 5-acre site features a former factory that resembles a large, red barn and offers 32,000 square feet of rooms fully furnished for a wide variety of educational opportunities and purposes. The facility spaces include a theater with stage; music and recording booths; woodworking shop; virtual reality suite; commercial kitchen; costume shop; makerspace; labs; and multiple areas for studying, reading or meeting.
