"The children saw, experienced, touched, and learned more than a week in a classroom could provide. More importantly, we saw learning and teaching going on the way we know it should... They got to get down and dirty. They explored, caught, measured, encouraged, questioned, hypothesized, corrected, ran, whispered, walked, dreamed and laughed all day long."
