Student testimonials

I learned about space and made a telescope.

Educator testimonial

This project allowed the students to participate in experiential learning. The students were guided with resources, computers, websites, and graphic organizers to write notes and come up with their ideas for their project. Once the students felt they had adequate information, they decided democratically what they wanted to do.
