Hi Dr. DiBlasi,

 I have had the absolute pleasure of implementing your Disney STEM project to my 5th grade enrichment group.  I have never had students more engaged in a project!  In an attempt to really make the PBL authentic.

 

I was hoping that there may be a place we can upload our ride designs and models for a “submission”?  I realize that you have no affiliation with Disney but it would be great if we could really send our ideas someplace to be accepted (i.e. photographs of our models, our drawings and written ride descriptions).  Please let me know if such a thing exists!!  I am so psyched to do this project again next year.

 

 Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication on this amazing project!
