"I emailed Jordan directly to thank him. He was AMAZING! It was really cool how he was able to "walk" the kids around NASA's different robots. I have had lots of parent comments about their children going on and on all evening about all the things they learned from Jordan. It was the BEST one I've ever done! How can you get cooler than humanoid robots and an engaging speaker!! I am so grateful to Nepris for opening the doors of the world to my students! Seriously, this is a game changer. One of my first graders told me in the hall that he has decided he wants to build robots. :) "
