"As always- loved it!  Extremely knowledgeable and patient docents, ties directly to our curriculum!  Better every year!  Thank you!"- 3rd grade, Ann G. McGuinness Elementary School, Union-Endicott Central School District, December 2017

"I just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing experience at Roberson this afternoon.  I've been teaching here for 29 years, and this was, perhaps, one of the best trips I've ever had.  You guys knocked it out of the ballpark!  The exhibition was amazing, the activities were outstanding and perfect for high schoolers, the students were engaged and interested the entire time they were there, and the activities (especially the camera obscura) directly related to work we're doing in several of our classes right now.  It was very exciting to see what we are teaching reinforced, and to see the students participate in the hands on activities, and not only understand how they relate and work together, but to see them working new ideas in their heads on the spot.  We already have several follow up ideas planned.  Outstanding!  Thank you for all you guys do."- 11th-12th grade, Chenango Forks High School, Chenango Forks Central School District, May 2018
 
"Thank you so much for organizing this trip for us.  It far exceeded our expectations!!! It was fun, it was informative, it was educational and just plain awesome! I have heard nothing but positive feedback from our students. I would definitely be interested in taking another group in the Spring of 2019."-  11th-12th grade, Chenango Forks High School, Chenango Forks Central School District, May 2018
