Seeing such young kids so comfortable, both with their music and in front of an audience, is very uplifting, and to see them develop through music I find extremely hopeful. My daughter is having a very positive time in Grade 4, and I can say with great certainty that music is playing a big part of that.

In Grade 1, Mr. Clement began encouraging me to tinker and draw my invention ideas. In Grade 2, he taught me that I could create anything! Now that we’re in Atlanta, my family and I teach my class about science and engineering, and I speak at schools about girls in STEM. Thank you ZIS and Mr. Clement for helping start my tech journey!

We've been really impressed with the ZIS student interns we've had at Heptagon during the past two summers. They bring an enthusiasm to learn and also to share their skills and perspectives with us - so it's a two-way, win-win relationship.

ZISMeets have been amazing for reconnecting with old classmates as well as meeting new friends from the ZIS community. I feel like everyone who has spent any time at ZIS (or IPSZ as I knew it) are all connected by shared experiences and ZISMeets have brought us together to share stories and learn from each other.
