Really positive experience. The students were all engaged for the nearly two hour session and didn't want it to end.

The students loved their day at Capital E! They got so much out of it and came back to school buzzing about their experiences.

    I really liked capital e, because it is like nothing we do at school, giving kids a chance to learn about some jobs in a really fun way.

    It was very fun and hard because it was hard to read what was on the thing (I forgot what it was) but it was fun because it was hard.
