Impressions after the class
- They got some energy. The Musashino students were very keen to build something.
- After the lecture on methods, there is also the opportunity to practice that was acquired.
- Most of the Musashino students have broadened their thinking and framework, and I sense that they got an opportunity to be more outward looking.
