About State House Express

This small grants program provides awards of up to $350 to eligible middle-school and high-school teachers of government, civics, history, and other social studies classes.

Visiting the State House and Applying for State House Express

The special tours developed by the Office of Legislative Services for Eagleton’s State House Express help all students, especially those in government, civics and history courses, learn about the lawmaking process.

The “Make-A-Law!” Simulation

State House Express student groups have the option of participating in a simulation of the legislative process during which they learn more about the process of bill passage and practice the skills of debate, discussion, negotiation, compromise and voting. Learn more about the pieces of legislation that will be used this academic year.
