by Kathleen O. (Administrator for this Organization) (December 19, 2009)
As an executive coach, I have seen how the skills built here (teamwork, problem solving, creativity) have a big impact on career success. However, mostly, I love to be able to interact with the kids as they are having so much fun. The ideas and solutions they create to technical and artistic challenges are jaw-dropping!
