“Just wanted to let you know that we are using [MedMyst] in conjunction with the epidemiology unit we are doing with our statistics and biology students. They are enjoying the site and adding to their knowledge about fighting disease. Thank you for your excellent work on the site!”— Teacher

“Wonderful! The room of 7th graders was so quiet as they worked (except for Reconstructor noise) that you could hear a pin drop! They even came in on their own time to finish. Good job.”— Teacher
