Feedback & Keys to Success

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

The Principal of one visited School congratulated us for all activities carried out and he invited us to come back in other time. In the other School, second-grade Professor told us that children don't have many extracurricular activities and that they had enjoyed a lot the workshops.

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

It´s very important to design activities outside of the university: Go to basic schools to talk with children and to public places to reach all ages people.
