STUDENT FEEDBACK FOR THE PROJECTS
"It was a very different and fun experience, one that is going to stay with me for a long time."
"These projects make a difference because it can implant the seed of scientific investigation and this ability will help you in the rest of school years and in college."
"This experience added to the overall project experience, as it made it clear that this was not just another run-of-the-mill project, but a major one. It encouraged us to put even more effort into our project, knowing that there were audiences across the world."
"Learning through a fun method like this was very effective as opposed to the very drab process of teaching or even researching on the internet. As this research had every element including live verbal interaction, our spirits were high. Even waking up at 5 in the morning to reach the school did not hurt at all."
