|Students are explaining their project to my colleague.|

I wish you could have been there to experience the great energy in the room as the students defended their work. They surprised themselves by giving in-depth answers to the "whys and hows" that the teachers asked. The next day, many of the students told me that the poster session was a lot of fun. The students in my honors section asked me when they get to do one!
