This is an amazing program. Other people are intrigued by it because they have never heard of anything like it...It makes our students think outside the box, problem solving, and it's done in a way that they can express themselves. -Teacher
I like how we engaged in many projects that had to do with technology. For example, we used different apps/ websites, GoPros, computers, etc. I've never given the opportunity to use that many technology or like anything that has to do with taking videos/ pictures or making a website in any of my other high school years. -Student
I liked that not only did we participate in the course but we also had the opportunity to make a difference within our schools. -Student
