"I was fortunate to have been invited to experience a mid-year Flex Friday at Baxter several weeks ago. What a gift! While I was met at the door by the executive director, I was soon whisked away by my student guides and, at every stop, again whisked away by the members of whatever project we happened upon – 3-D printers, self-stabilizing bicycles, violin construction, wind turbine blades. I was continuously blown away by the boundless energy, the exuberant enthusiasm, the self-confident expressiveness and the voracious desire to hear reactions."
