Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

It is a motivator that helps initiate activity within the classroom and building.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

I think that lessons geared towards the higher achieving high school/AP student might be relevant. I shared some of the material with my son's 7th grade science classes, but some of the material was too young for my students.
