Spring/Summer feedback form samplings

Once in awhile it’s nice to step back and indulge in paging through some nostalgic things you know will make you feel good. Some letters from an old friend, maybe a childhood collection, yearbooks, old clothes – whatever works for you. Today I read through the stacks of feedback forms we collected during the first spring and summer of Iridescent SBSS programs. I scanned some of them and will paste them here without too much comment. I hope it is a useful exercise and not just another installment of not-that-cute baby photos in your inbox from a distant relative you’ll probably never see again.

The first and probably most obvious trend I noticed was that we seem to have left an impression of a model of fun learning:

Next, many students seemed to attach to new perspectives of themselves as ‘creators’ and ‘makers’ and ‘builders’ – which is just pretty cool:

We tried to raise awareness of engineering as a viable, accessible career path, and even as a skill which can be applied to solving problems in everyday life:

Finally, of course, some of the stuff was just too adorable to ignore:

There are reams more of these things! But with respect to brevity I’ll end here.

Peace out!
