I learned a lot about professionalism from the interview and how to show through your body language that you're excited and happy to be there.
I loved having real life people coming to talk about their success and failures.
Interaction between professionals and students was excellent
Loved the students seeing the teamwork and passion the professionals had for their career.
The students were great, they seem well prepared and passionate about their project
Parent of son in the program
[The program was] confidence builder, skill identifier (I think he learned a lot about himself he wouldn't have otherwise); challenged and stretched but in such a nurturing setting, loved the steps, the team approach and the field trips
Parent of daughter in the program
It turns out to have been a pivotal experience in her young life that I as a parent can recognize.
Overall, [the site visit] was very interesting and informative, while still being enjoyable
It is all about application and taking what you know and applying it in the real world. This class has given me skills that I can take outside of high school which is really beneficial.
Having guest instructors come in helped us see how what we are learning applies to the real world and how we can take what we learn and apply it.
It's more engaging and more applicable to the real world.
