15 Quotes from Kids… I liked the whole thing because we had fun while we were learning. I liked the field trip because I got to see in person the job I want to do. I also learned a lot. My favorite thing was going to the Chemistry labs. We never did anything like that in my middle school. What could be better? Make the camp longer.

16 Did they learn anything?…

17 More Quotes from Parents… Kudos, to everyone involved in the Energy Venture Camp! My sons cannot stop talking about how much knowledge they have gained in less than a week! What a great age to educate Americas future leaders!
