Go-Baby-Go

The College’s Physical Therapy program hosted Go-Baby-Go on Saturday, March 4, on the Storrs Campus. The event provided battery-powered cars for three children with mobility challenges, giving them the opportunity to move around in their environment. Physical therapy students worked with Assistant Professor in Residence Deborah Bubela and physical therapist Rosie Flamming from the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center to modify battery-powered cars so that children with mobility challenges could operate them. Fun was had by all!

Since 1980, the DEEP Wildlife Division’s “Connecticut Bluebird Project” has been distributing rough-cut lumber to organized groups to construct, install, and maintain bluebird nest boxes. This annual program has been highly successful in generating tens of thousands of bluebird boxes and helping restore bluebird populations statewide. Photo: Paul J. Fusco /DEEP Wildlife Division
