"It was great to see students [from across the world] find common ground and then steer the project with their own enthusiasm and diverse skillsets."

"It stretched me in a personal way, making me aware of my own limits."

Quotes_red_up.png

"It was completely virtual, and it gave the opportunity for participants to collaborate with students from around the world in real time; to connect with other people who have a similar passion as your own. It really opened my eyes to the world and that it is so much more than the small bubble where I live and work."
