We regularly get feedback from our participants and collaborators.
Here is just a few recent things they have had to say!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the visit of the WEN volunteers yesterday to our school. It was especially nice to see one of our previous students from 2 years ago.
The WEN Outreach Volunteers were awesome and I think they were a great representation of Engineering and UoA.
It’s a fun, experience to get to learn about engineering. The people were really inspiring. I wish it was longer!
