How many of the projects represent what the kids actually thought up by themselves or more likely, by their parents? Sadly, I think it is now more of the latter.

Too bad you did this as a fluff piece as opposed to highlighting the number of serious projects that were done, reflecting very high levels of scientific exploration.

And "Stuck in the Stone Age"--it doesn't really matter where the project idea came from, the goal is to teach the kids the scientific method and to celebrate their learning process.

The kids are not likely learning the scientific process for the first time. And what have they learned exactly? Have your mommy or daddy suggest something to you and then you claim the work and ideas as your own? I think that's the Chinese model of science, not the Western one. Try again, again.

What's interesting here is that seventh-grade girls are storing hot dogs in their bedroom closets.

Future scientists of the World!

What better way to learn than to do so with items of personal interest--nail polish & hotdogs!!!
