Educator testimonial

I have to say that the JWST Project helped my students to engage in reading, writing, science and engineering in a way that made learning come alive for them. The students went into greater depth than any 5th grade textbook would have and the best part was that it was all done voluntarily! The excitement could be felt throughout the day as they kept returning to their project whenever they had additional time, beyond the allotted classroom time!
