      1. Benefit the physical space by regularly making us assess basic supply levels (and buy things we need to support specific areas); signal our commitment to supporting certain projects to our community
      2. Are great staff onboarding/training experience; forces new students to step up and learn by teaching; leadership and presentation skill development
      3. Helps fill in curriculum gaps; students learn what they don’t learn in class. Also helps staff avoid repetitive questions that are addressed in workshop
