What are People Saying About Newton's Road?

Coral C., 5th Grader "From the moment I heard about [the STEM Kits] I wanted to go check one out for me and my brother. They looked hard but once you start working on them your brain started working and you could really finish them and they were fun."
Heidi Skodack, TCAPS Director of School Improvement - STEM & CTE, NR Board Member “In the past year and half, Newton’s Road has made so much progress with reach and visibility in our community.”
Rose Zivkovich, Homeschool Parent "Newton's Road is an incredible resource for our community here in Northern Michigan! They have led and supported many quality STEM events; they are a key partner in developing connections between students in our region and STEM related businesses and resources; they have developed a robust website that brings together families, businesses, and organizations with shared interests; and they have taken the lead on connecting local STEM/Maker organizations to really capitalize on collaborative brainstorming and cooperation. Thank you Newton's Road for all of your hard work building up our community!"
