Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "As a pre service educator, this makes me excited to start my career and maybe one day be awarded for doing great work in the content area of science"
  • "I found it exciting to know about all these awards. I realize there is a lot of resources out here that sometimes we don't know about or have access to but it is important to share."
  • "There are a lot of award programs I did not have knowledge about. I enjoyed every minute of it, it was straight to the point and not boring, if we had any questions they were quickly answered. Overall GREAT!"

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' account page for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
