"My first grade class participated in the Marble Run Challenge. It was a perfect extension to my science curriculum, which includes a unit on balance and motion. Students were highly engaged as they planned and built their marble runs. As they worked in teams, they needed to collaborate, problem-solve, and persist. After the project, they enjoyed looking at the project slideshow and noting how others solved the challenge."

– Michelle Mooney, Wisconsin (Quote #5)

"I have been happily participating in Projects By Jen since 2007. I have been able to incorporate these projects into many of our curriculum areas. The projects are fun, educational, and very engaging for my students. They encourage cooperation and collaboration in the classroom. I have used them to strengthen map, graphing, geography, math, writing, and technology skills, to name a few."
