Very informative, enjoyable, brings back memories of my days as an ag major.”

“Thank you for providing content knowledge to high school teachers and for coupling this with research...  Excellent job – well organized.”

“It is imperative that teachers get out of the classroom and keep up-to-date on the changing field of science and research. In this way, the information reaches students.”


“It was great to watch UD professors and see the set up used, the amount of work they do for the community and outreach, how they further their studies in research.”

“High school outreach via UD is a concept that needs to be developed maybe through an educational graduate study program..”

I was invigorated and inspired for our high school science curriculum... I also felt that we definitely need to have more contact with UD professionals.
