"Awesome way to demonstrate differentiation in terms of how people / students work, process information. Also shows how simple things can turn into amazing pieces with or without expensive equipment. It's a great way to teach/ introduce/ model without all the boring educational terms. 1 of 3 in-services I have actually enjoyed. Amazing way to inform and demonstrate. 10/10 :-)" Abram G., high school teacher
