"The workshops and case package were very nicely organized, so finding the info we were looking for was easy. It was also super cool to have several different university students giving us tips during webinars.”
"IgNITE was great with making research feel accessible to high school students and give them a taste of exposure to the field! The resources and mentors really helped as well.”
