Thank you for such a wonderful field trip experience! Your leaders did such a great job at keeping our kids engaged.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
