our educational programs
"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."
"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."
