“What a wonderful experience. As a teacher I have had an opportunity to see a different approach to teaching and learning. There are many ideas and methods I will be trying out in my own classroom. I have rarely seen my students so involved and interested. They have worked so hard all week and learned so much thanks to the knowledge the staff made available to them and the guidance and patience with which they have passed on their passion for space and learning.”

– Educator at Les Maristes Toulouse in Toulouse, France
