“I like the hands on aspect of PBL and seeing that what I’m learning will actually will be applied and then not only knowing that it will be applied but actually going out into the community and applying it and years later going back and looking at it and saying, ‘Hey I did that!’…. I like that what I’m learning is not going to be put to waste after high school that I’ll either need it in college, or in my career, or in the workforce.”
-Emma Edwards, CSA New Tech Student Columbus, IN- Freshman
