A few quotes from past IGED student surveys:
- I thought the engineering field just involved people with goggles working on machinery, but it was not.
- It opened my eyes to new jobs.
- It was really interesting to find out new things that I didn’t know, it gives me more interest to look for a career in one of these fields.
- It sounds like so much fun and I want to help make the world a better place.
- I really don’t know what I expected this program to be like, but it was excellent.
- I had always thought of science as a ‘boring’ subject, but this really altered my view.
