Robots were given out. We will start working on them next week.
I have given you an article "U.S. Losing Ground in Education" to provide
you some back ground information. As a group investigate the problem
and come up with 5 suggestions that you think may help resolve the problem.
Look into issues that are affecting (affected) you or your school.
There are many different research papers on this subject. Make sure to
reference at least 2 of them along with the list of suggestions you have
come up with. Submit a single page and be ready for class discussions.

Ms. Sarah Henderson, CSEMS Scholar. Presentation
Hurricane Katrina caused significant damage in LA, AL, and MS. New Orleans, which is
built below the sea level, was flooded with a large amount of water.
In order to start evaluating and conducting reconstructions, pumps were
installed to pump the water back to the lakes and the gulf.
I am wondering if we can come up with an intelligent guess for the
amount of water (perhaps in gallons) that went into New Orleans after
the levee broke down. Please conduct some research, investigate the problem,
and discuss it as a group. Please submit a one-page report on what you
have found. Also, include an explanation on how the town stayed dry despite
being below sea level.
