Here's what some of the participants have had to say about FIT for the Future:
My favorite part of FIT for the future was:

"Listening to the professional's experiences and opinions." -- Muncie Robotics student
"Meeting and talking to new people." -- Twin Lakes student
"The flight 171 activity. It was my first session, and very inspiring." -- Clay City student
"That my students could not stop talking about their experiences. They were engaged they were excited they really enjoyed their day!  Thank you!!!" -- Turkey Run teacher
"I have a better understanding why Female ONLY Events need to be created in Technology." -- Seymour teacher
"the Wind Tunnel Aerodynamics workshop and working with that team and Kristina Lawyer. They were so cool to work with." -- Perry Meridian student
"Adventures in Game Design!!!!" -- Pike student
"Getting to know different people from different schools that had the same interests as me I had lots of fun meeting new people and getting to know where to go for colleges and what classes to take in high school." -- Twin Lakes student
"Doing the different activities in the morning. I liked learning about packaging engineering." -- Seymour student
"My favorite part of the conference was playing with the robot in Automating Life Around You. The speakers and volunteers were very nice, and I met several mentors I will definitely be keeping in touch with in the future. Thank you for the opportunity to meet new people and expand my horizons in STEM careers." -- Twin Lakes student
"Getting to talk one on one with a woman from the networking panel." -- Clay City student
"My favorite part of FIT would have to be when we divided into our own groups and went to our activities. Even though we were only in between two buildings, I loved being able to see part of the campus, and seeing what the buildings and classrooms looked like." --Turkey Run student
