Student Testimonials

Summer 2022 Course Feedback

Lisa Ing

Not only did I learn more about the importance of AI ethics, but I also learned more about myself! I highly encourage students to take this course not only for its technical knowledge, but also for the personal growth.

Everardo Rocha

 I want to say thank you very much Mr. Romero, for this opportunity you gave us I really appreciate it.  I highly recommend other students to consider the benefits I received taking this course.

Carolina Dominquez

The study of the Metaverse was something that I didn't think too much about, but through this course and the meetings we had I really gained a bigger interest in this.  I now think about it everyday!  The lessons were also quite enticing.  

Benson Manzano

 I highly recommend this course for other students to learn about not only the excitement of the future but also the problems that exist that we as the new generation must acknowledge and understand.
