Reviews from our students

“My feedback in general about the course is that I became more aware about every problem that’s happening in the world, along with, trying to actually solve the problem, made me more confident to take the risk no matter what happens; never give up and be persistent. Moreover, the fact that I’ve experienced every step in order to solve a problem is such a fascinating journey; all my life I’ve only been aware of the problem and the solution not the steps to solve an actual problem.”
