 Here are some comments about the presentation from local elementary school teachers…

“Students enjoyed the presentation and the game. The presentation was influential. I learned I’m addicted to sugar… It was a wonderful presentation.”

-Lisa Romero, 6th grade teacher at Alice Maxwell Elementary School

“Great presentation! Very precise and informational for both me and the students. I believe the students gained some insight about sugar. The information was very relevant. I thought [Aiden] spoke well and was very knowledgeable about the subject.”

-Shane Rodriguez, 6th grade teacher at Alice Maxwell Elementary School

Lots of great information relevant to students’ lives. It’s important for young people to see another young person as the expert in the room! The game was a great way to get interaction from [the] audience.”

-Mary Waechter, 6th grade teacher at Alice Maxwell Elementary School

“[This] presentation was very well done. Students got a visual and very impactful understanding of the amount of sugar in drinks and foods we eat.  They also got a concept of what a more healthy sugar intake would be.  I myself was shocked at how much added sugar was in sweetened yogurt products.  I would love to share your presentation with my own family members and friends.

I recently referred to [this] presentation when I discovered a friend of mine cannot store food in his office fridge, because it is full of Mountain Dew!  I encouraged him to cut down on his intake and mentioned the health hazards [that have been] shared with us.”

-Mona Melton,  5th and 6th grade SWAS teacher at Roy Gomm Elementary School

“The highly interactive lesson with the students was very engaging. The students were very interested to learn about the nutritional content of various beverages and the effects upon the body of  drinking different beverages.”

-Jack Green,  5th and 6th grade SWAS teacher at Roy Gomm Elementary school

“The amounts of sugar in drinks that are found in the average household are astonishing.  I think that the public is unaware of how much of the recommended daily allowance of sugar they are consuming with one soft drink.”

-Angela Gonzalez,  4th grade  teacher at Hunsberger Elementary school

“My students learned a lot about the beverages they drink. They were so excited about what they learned they went home that night and let their parents know how much sugar was in the drinks their parents were drinking.  I am looking forward to using the data on [the] website. I plan on using the data to help my students learn about data analysis.”

-Amie Braik,  M.Ed. Fifth Grade Teacher

“I was thoroughly impressed with Aiden’s ability to engage student learning throughout his H2Operation presentation.  Students were actively engaged throughout the presentation asking questions and especially enjoyed participating in the sugar guessing game!

The information [that had been] shared was just right for the age level and the students were engaged the entire time.”

-Christi Wilson,  5th grade  teacher at Hunsberger Elementary school

Comments from 6th graders:

“The presentation was really interesting. I liked how Aiden spoke with a loud, clear voice. I also liked how he interacted with the students when talking about sugar and calories. Aiden used facts and supported them with evidence and his own words.”

“Aiden spoke clearly and when asked questions, he answered them with detail. The power-point was organized and had only important details. Aiden interacted and most of the time made eye contact with students. Overall, the presentation taught us about the importance of being healthy.”

“Aiden’s presentation was fun to listen to and I like how he gave us water… I also liked how Aiden laughed and talked to us like we knew him. Also, Aiden let us ask him lots of questions.”

“That was the best presentation I have seen so far and I learned a lot from it.”
