What educators are saying

My students absolutely loved this stem challenge. It was fun to watch them play with their dragons afterwards and they were so excited to show their parents!
I am not sure who had more fun the teacher or the children. We had a blast learning about Chinese New Year and then creating our dragons to end with our New Year's Parade.
