The Next Level
Since leading the University of Delaware Blue Hens to the Sweet 16 this March, Elena Delle Donne has taken her game to the next level, both literally and figuratively. For this week’s First Look, we joined dozens of Delaware fans who traveled to the nation’s capital to see Delle Donne and her new team the Chicago Sky take on the Washington Mystics.

State of Play
The Caesar Rodney Institute closely follows the Delaware economy. For State of Play this week John Stapleford, the Director of the group’s Center for Economic Policy and Analysis offers his perspective on how things are going.

First Experience: The Flint Collection
Did you know Wilmington is home to one of the largest collections of antique, playable harpsichords in North America? They belong to the Flint Collection and date from 1570-1779. First Experience heads to the Barn at Flintwoods to listen to this unique collection, and sound.

Flights of Fancy
The ‘Birds in Action’ program is back at the Brandywine Zoo. The unique, interactive program gives zoogoers an up close and personal look at some amazing birds.
