    Testimonials from CREST Alumni:

    “CREST allowed for an opportunity to make a useable product throughout the week. I often find PD programs are too focused on

    content. CREST was a nice balance of content, skills, and time to create something meaningful that will directly impact my students.”

    “CREST exposed me to real data collection in the field. Offered me time, support, and ideas to implement positive change.”

    “One of my goals as an educator is to keep students engaged in their learning – CREST modeled opportunities for this and provided

    time and resources to help me take it back to my students!”

    “CREST gave me the opportunity to work with some inspirational educators and scientists in our area.”
