“Providing students with a hands-on, collaborative group activity engages all learners and infuses the enthusiasm of learning through innovative projects. The student performances and final speaker inspired me the most because each and every performance was honest, heart-felt, and relatable. Thank you for the inspiring messages to our students—our future scholars!” — Teacher
