“What we want to do is let people know what’s possible,” says Bob Torrani. At the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, there are always new possibilities whether from their one of a kind 3D printer or solar roofing system. The center is teaming up with local researchers, businesses, and students to collaborate and invent a myriad of new technology which will need a growing trained workforce in order to operate.
