This is awesome, Jon! Well done. I really want my students to do this next year. Thanks for the inspiration!
Dang. That is absolutely a beautiful thing. Your students not only had some great ideas, but very well executed. I’m so happy you shared this with us. Can’t wait to see what else they come up with (next year).
Thanks Andrew, we had a great time over those 2 days!
