I loved the way Julz worked with the students. When she was here, the students loved science time. Julz has a great way of engaging with the students and getting them to work well and co-operatively in small groups. Your work helped build our younger students’ natural wonder and awe of the natural and physical world. Our students were also taught how to have good scientific practice when investigating without taking the excitement and enjoyability out of it. Thanks so much, Julz, you not only enthused the students but the teachers also.
