Awards, Quotes, Testimonials

"The entire experience was great! Being able to feel like we went on a field trip without ever leaving the school was the best part." 


"My kids loved the experience and learned so much. Truly out of all of the trips we have taken in 2 years, I enjoy Ann Arbor's the most. Thanks so much!"


“Students learned a multitude of facts about the eye and how vision works. The hands-on approach to the eye dissection forced students to participate and even students who were initially hesitant were fully participating by the end of the session."


“Being interactive (with the presenter and each other) helped them to work out their mistakes in a "safe" environment where they were free to experiment with the fraction pieces. The presenter was extremely upbeat and that made the field trip much more interesting. It also married many different learning styles into one and proved quite effective."


“This is always very well done. There is ample time for exploring after directions. Directions were very thorough. Extremely engaging to students and challenges their thinking. I have shared this workshop with others in my district because it is so wonderful."


“This was one of the best programs we have ever had! So engaging and informational!"
