On the "Native American Cultures" Class. . .

"The students enjoyed the class very much. The instructor hit on and reinforced Ideas that we have talked about, while providing new information and visuals that I do not have at my disposal."



On teacher inservice. . .
"I would like to thank you for our VFT with Boonshoft. Our Science teachers--who are generally a pretty tough crowd--really liked it. They immediately saw all of the possibilities of both our technology and your museum. You all made this professional development day one of the best we've had."
