What are teachers and students saying?

"I loved how motivating, empowering, and absolutely amazing the program was. It was really moving to have a set of people take their time to show you how you can better your life with design-thinking skills."

"A highlight is mainly being able to learn more about entrepreneurship and being able to meet new people to increase my connections."

"I think this is an excellent program but I also think that more emphasis on the realities of time and apprehension around creativity would enhance everyone's learning experience. This could be an issue rooted in inequities."
BUILD TEACHER

"I expected to half listen to while scrolling social media on my phone. In fact, I do not believe I checked my email or socials at all for the entire 2 hours. If that is not the sign of a good PD I'm not sure what is!"
