Right from the start my students felt like they were special and their ideas were valued. You created opportunities for students to apply their classroom learning to real-world scenarios. Comments from my students included: “I feel more informed.” & “I feel like renewable energy is more accessible.” I look forward to being involved with future events. Many thanks!!
