My Experience Abroad:

I loved everything about my experience abroad/ All the lessons at the Science Workshop had experiments after a brief lecture of the material. The experiments and hands-on activities were really fun and interesting because it was great to apply the science and see the kids excited to see new things, like picking up an ice cube with just string and salt! I like to apply these concepts of interactive teaching when I tutor my major's introductory course or when I study.
