It literally is impossible for me to pinpoint any one moment – there are so many! But cumulatively, the biggest realization has been that the original vision that youth given the “wicked problems” alongside support and mentorship, create powerful, life altering solutions. And they do it with passion, intensity, and fun! Whether in St. Lucia testing a game just before Christmas, in the MakerLab creating a robot that swims, breathes fire, and runs an obstacle course, or with graduate students managing collaborative processes, time and again I have witnessed the power of our youth. Our future will be fine if we continue to support this type of “bar raising” education.
