“Your Surviving Space
workshop at CAMI was the best professional development workshop I’ve attended in 20 years of teaching. The quality of the experiences plus the cutting edge classroom content provided by Scott Wiley and Sten Odenwald was exceptional and inspiring. Teachers in Space is the Best of the Best.”
