The length of the class and the activity which is right up most kids' alley. My student said "I didn't know that you can jump three times higher on Mars than Earth." One can't beat that kind of excitement.


How to let children know not to continually pop up with comments. One child in particular hogged most of the discussion. Don't know how to deal with that. Have kids on mute?

Ms. Amber is the greatest teacher possible! She is exciting, engaging, and seems to show a general love for teaching children! The material is excellent, and our child is not the only one who has learned a few things during the classes! These classes are one of the best opportunities out there!


Add more class options taught by Ms. Amber, especially in the evening/following school hours, as well as adding more openings for free classes/maybe give past students a head-start for access to the free classes?
