It was definitely a test of self directed learning, peer-based learning, and sheer determination. It was a memorable experience that they can add to their resume as they begin looking for universities to attend in the coming years. For me, it hit home how capable teenagers are, and it drives me further to push my younger students to experience real world opportunities.
