"The teachers at my school were very impressed by the presenter. He was very engaging and had a wealth of knowledge to share with the students as well as the staff. There was some feedback in regards to the students being seated for a long period of time. It is recommended that the program include more hands on activities for the students to participate in throughout the incursion. Additionally, there was a reference to particular objects and them having a gender. I know this is a common grammatical feature amongst many other languages, however, the items that were used to represent a male and female were not the most appropriate for the audience's age. Once again, the presenter was fantastic and it was a great experience for the students."
