“[Reconstructors] is an awesome site! I think that this taught me more than sitting in class and just listening because I had to answer questions, but at the same time I was having fun. I think that they should have this thing for every subject ...”— Student

“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
