"You come to us with everything we need, set up and teach the class. It is easy to work with and the hands on activities are highly engaging. We loved the hands-on, fast-pace style of this program. The technology integration was great, and the mechanical pieces (such as the air launcher and the leg pulley system) were really engaging as well." ~classroom educator
