Here’s feedback on AlligatorZone® Academy’s 2017 summer workshop from a parent who attended along with her 11-year old:
“I want to thank you for all of your effort in putting together a great overview of what it takes to start a business. Daniel has learned a lot and has enjoyed this experience. He most enjoyed meeting the founders in person but also really liked the video calls with Actev Motors and Bakeys. Nice that he learned that he needs to prepare with research and assignments to make the most out of a meeting! He also really enjoyed being an ambassador last weekend.”
Here are some videos with more testimonials from parents and the young participants of the workshop by AlligatorZone® Academy.
