    I wanted to share what a wonderful experience my kids had in these classes. Dr. Erica is an inspiring teacher and there is nothing better than kids coming home with wonderful engineering stories and excitement about what they have been doing! So thank you!

    Dr. Erica is such a great part of our community. My daughter has done multiple camps and after school sessions with her and I’m blown away with what she learns and experiences.

    Both Mission to Mars and Light & Lasers were fun, engaging camps. My daughter brought home cool projects and explained to me how they worked. Great camps!

    My sons really enjoyed their 4 sessions of camp! Dr. Erica always had new projects for them to explore and they enjoyed telling me about the things they learned. They also enjoyed having choices in the afternoon to pursue what interested them.

    We loved Rosie Research camp! Our daughter was so proud of what she learned and achieved with Dr. Erica’s projects. The daily recaps were a wonderful peek into the campers’ days, and they helped guide follow up conversations too.
