I am off to a slow start this school year.  My environmental science class (those participating in L2R) had only just finished learning about laboratory safety  and had just begun the L2R pre-test when hurricane Isaac threatened.  We have been out of school for a whole week.  I sent the students an email asking them if they could access the internet to please complete the pre-test.  Due to being out of school, I have not received or set up any of the equipment for atmosphere testing and the students have not yet even heard of the program/project other than the...
