"I don't know where to begin in explaining the impact you have made with your WaterVentures mobile lab. The experience was beyond anything I ever imagined. The teachers were blown away with your top-notched instructors and hands-on approach to learning more about topics dealing with water. Your professional staff, Kelly, Amy and Sarah were so patient, extremely knowledgeable and took their job very seriously to educate all 240 students at Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School. Also, it's great to know that Mark was such a great team player in making sure everything was set and secure for our students." - Mary Lynn Hess, Goldsboro Elementary School, Sanford, Florida

"...Your presenters, Amy, Ashley, and Sarah were excellent!  They kept the children's focus with discussion and activities that opened their eyes to another part of Florida.  The interactions throughout this presentation with my students were heart warming and my students couldn't wait to draw their appreciation pictures.  WaterVentures is a unique educational experience and I am grateful to those who had the insight to create this mobile classroom.  I hope you will return again!" - Glenn Steinberg, Colonial Drive Elementary School, Miami, Florida
