"We learned how to bend wood. I think it was the funnest thing we did. There was a big log, and we pulled it out [of the steam box] and wrapped it around curved sticks and clamped it there. I was a clamper." - Darcey, elementary student
“I liked making a boat. I liked how Randy did not tell what to do. We did it ourself." - 3rd grader
