Some young students from the Connecticut Experimental Learning Center in Branford, CT enjoyed sitting in the classroom that President Calvin Coolidge may have sat in prior to his graduation from Black River Academy in 1890.  The students had an opportunity to see what it was like to write with a quill pen rather the ballpoint they’re used to now.  All of this was included in a tour of the building that houses the Black River Academy Museum (BRAM).  The CT Experimental Learning Center is a school that provides small class size with exceptional hands-on and realistic world learning experiences.
