“I still have to pinch myself when I think of how I fell into this program. This is the most engaging educational program in the country. What else gives students a chance to research, collaborate, problem solve, create, write, speak, all for an authentic audience of the highest caliber?”

I was totally bowled over. I was also, admittedly, overwhelmed a little by the challenges ahead–but only in a way that inspired me to want to meet those challenges. I really can’t say enough good things about this training and program.
