I love that my students learned to listen to each other better. They learned to share ideas, carefully critique each other and move forward. It was incredible and I hope they retain these communication and respect qualities for a lifetime.
Washington Elementary School, Sandpoint, ID
At the end of this project, my students were saying things like, "I feel like I can do anything now!", "I want to be a designer!" and, "I never thought I could do this, but I did it and it feels so great!"... things I never imagined I would hear."
Sunset Ridge Middle School, Hartford, CT
They never wanted to miss a day from the project. They gave up their free time to do more than they had to. They were thinking critically and problem solving. They made a difference in our school community.
