"It was so wonderful to listen to the high school students and kindergarten students interact," said Amy Hoaglund, kindergarten teacher at Meadow Pond Elementary. "When you look at the project in action, see the exchange of smiles, and listen to the conversation about design, weather, and of course, dogs, you can't help but smile knowing that everyone in the room has benefited and/or taken away something positive from this experience."
"My students were more than excited to meet the older students, some being KES alumni," said Andrea McGrath, kindergarten teacher at Katonah Elementary. “The room was truly full of excitement as they shared their ideas with their high school engineers. What great role models!”
"Throughout this experience, students work collaboratively to problem solve, investigate, and generate possible solutions," said Ms. Walsh. "It is an intellectually engaging, relevant, and active learning experience for all students involved."
