“Participating in this program was awesome!  The kids need to see that there are definitely things they can do in the realm of science that doesn’t have to be scary or unattainable, and that there is a future for them in lots of different STEM places.  I think a lot of girls think that if I’m not good at math, I can’t do science.  So, it gives them more confidence to have these direct experiences.  It was really good for them.” Pueblo, CO 5th grade teacher 

“Our students had the chance to interact with real scientists in a personal setting. I think they come away from those interactions with the sense that careers in science are often exciting and interesting - and that the people in those careers are exciting and interesting, too. The focus on inquiry encouraged kids to think deeply about what they know and what they don't know yet. I think that helped the kids identify themselves as scientists.” Lafayette, CO 4th grade chaperone
