Talcott Mountain Science Center for Student Involvement, Inc. is an undervalued jewel in the Farmington Valley. Since the Academy's inception in 1983, its legacy of practical studies has proven to be a haven for burgeoning young minds boasting an educational curriculum for K-8. Join CTVV Host, Susan Regan as she interviews Jonathan Craig, Executive Director of TMSC and the students of the Academy as they pursue experiments to understand and contribute to the progress of green energy benefits to our community. Key to this project has been the generous financial and personal support of Bernie Zahren, CEO of Zahren Financial Co, LLC and adjacent Avon resident to the Center. His home was the 2011 winner of the Net Zero Energy Challenge awarded by the CT Energy Efficiency Fund in coordination with CL&P. The Academy was the benefactor of the opportunity to incorporate their research in conjunction with the wind turbine, geothermal heating and air conditioning and solar thermal hot water system which fully support the energy needs for Mr. Zahren's home.
