    I would have to go with pens on this one, primarily for for three main reasons: first, the longevity of a pen far exceeds that of a pencil; second, pens writing quality won’t diminish throughout the duration of the writings; and third, pens come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and types to fit each users personality.

    I’m all in for pencils. Nick Gourdoux, it’s to my understanding that its your opinion to like pens more, but the way you insulted pencil users was out of line. I am reading this article because I am a seventh grader in a steam program for only a few selected girls. We are building a portable, electronic, pencil sharpener. I have done a survey over pensils and pens. I’ve asked students and adults. So far pencils are winning. So when you said its for elementary students you were wrong.
