  1. Was the room arrangement appropriate for this type of workshop?
    I had plenty of room to spread out and create the project.

  1. Did you have enough materials to complete the required assignment?
    You had so many options, I didn't know what to select first!
    I found everything I needed to complete the project.
    A variety of props would have been helpful.
    No, you didn't have enough supplies for my topic.

  1. Was there enough time to complete your project?
    I just barely finished.
    About 10 more minutes would have been great.
    There was way to much to do in this amount of time.

  1. Did you feel this workshop was valuable and will enhance your current science curriculum?
    I can't wait to try it with my students!
    The ideas were great and I may start using it during the next unit.
    I like the information presented but I'm not sure if it will be valuable to my students.
    This was fun but I don't think my students will learn anything, they will just play with the clay.

  1. Would you like to receive additional training on clay animation science?
    Definitely! I have more characters to make and concepts to present!
    Yes, I enjoyed this workshop and would be willing to attend another session.
    Sure, as long as it only lasts for one hour.
    No thanks, I learned what I needed.
    I hate having colored hands and creating models. Once was enough!
