Testimonials

See what teachers are saying about our programs!

“The students enjoyed the program immensely as they were engaged and asking a lot of good questions.” – Instructor

“I would highly recommend this experience to others and look forward to participating again in the future! The program was aligned to our 4th grade Forces and Motion STEM unit, and students were able to make connections to how gravity affects the motion of objects. Students were engaged throughout the experience and loved constructing and testing rotor blades.” -Instructor

“I would like to thank Liz Skinner and Candi James for their expertise. The students really enjoyed it!” – Instructor

“The content was based on fifth grade standards and was an excellent way for the students to make a connection to concepts that can sometimes seem foreign to young students.” -Instructor

Homeschool Programs

The ACE Program also offers Homeschool workshops throughout the year!
