- I had a great time.
The last batch of students was very interactive.
I would love to be invited back.
- Great slide
presentation and young speaker – related to student and covered a broad area
in all. I was really interested.
- Very informative.
- Possibly combine some
pathways to increase attendance for presentations.
- Thanks for having faith
- Bring more kids!
- Great time – once kids
opened up, really great communication!
- The afternoon group
seemed much more interested and engaged with all 3 of us.
I don’t know if there is a specific way to liven up the earlier
groups, but the difference was significant.
- Tech support – very
helpful with computer problem.
- I feel it is a great
idea – students today need us much as possible figuring out what they want
to do with their futures.
- A lot of repetition in
written material. I was unsure where
to sign in so I went directly to the room.
- Kids were very
interactive. Good questions.
- Some of the kids seemed
really interested, some weren’t. Did
they choose what they attended?
Overall, I think it is a great opportunity for students to get exposure to
careers. Great idea.
- Hopefully we motivated
- The facilitator for our
a.m. session did not show. This gave
a disorganized feel to the session.
The facilitator should be the host of the program and speak initially,
introducing the speakers.
- Bring tools – examples.
- My career may fit
better with agro science; however there are certainly earth science
elements. Overall, good experience.
I hope that the students realize the value of a program such as this…
- One suggestion on a
personal level – I’d rather not see such a promotion and use of bottled
water – there’s plenty of drinking fountains around the building.
- Thanks Mike.
See you next year.
- Good format.
Kids seemed pretty engaged. I
always enjoy presenting.
- I liked it better when
it was back at the high school.
- Change the name to
Forest Management or Natural Resource Management rather than Forestry
- Allow the students to
choose their interest group; some seemed interested, others were sleeping.
- One speaker would be
adequate for groups with only a few students.
- Great opportunity –
- Only 2 of the 30
students in the 1st session expressed interest in our topic.
They were assigned to attend.
I think students should be allowed to attend whatever they want to attend.
- Being in nutrition
education, I’m not sure I was a good fit with agriculture.
The two participants who came were interested in logging and
- Have more students
signed up for the session account for no shows – we had 3 students.
- Truly enjoy this
- I really think more
prep work at the high school needs to be completed.
Students seem to think of it as a “day off” rather than gaining as
much as they should. Maybe some sort
of contact between presenter and students prior to, or after, the event at
NMU. Finally, I felt a bit of a time
crunch while talking.
- Room was too hot,
students seemed sleepy and disinterested.
- Great program, the kids
seemed to get good value out of our discussion.
- Small groups were nice.
Very quiet groups this year.
- If possible it would be
better if the students would be more prepared to cooperate and interact.
Have them come in with more questions for us?
- I think this is a great
opportunity for kids and the presenters. The
sessions are most successful when the kids want to be there.
- A better job of
matching interested kids to the session this year!
Nice to have interested kids.
Way to go! Thanks.
- Wonderful experience –
loved the team!
- The students were very
happy it was interactive!
