Students on summer break will get a chance to learn from the experts about state government, including how the state Supreme Court operates.

Three justices are participating in the 4th annual Day Trips with Kids, scheduled for Thursday and on Aug. 6. The Judicial Branch, in collaboration with the League of Women Voters, the Museum of Connecticut History and Connecticut's Old State House, is sponsoring the program.

On Thursday, Justices Carmen Espinosa, Dennis Eveleigh and Andrew McDonald will conduct tours of the Supreme Court courtroom. Espinosa's tour will be offered for the first time in Spanish. A full schedule of the tours can be found here.

There will also be tours of the Legislative Office Building, state Capitol, Museum of Connecticut History and the Old State House.
