What educators are saying

My students have "been all over this" since I started the project with them. They have been very motivated to be creative, do research, etc. I am very much looking forward to their final projects.
SR's PBL units are amazing and this one doesn't disappoint either. I have gotten wonderful work from my students from her PBLs and am excited to have this one in my line up.
