    We have a small middle school group viewing the programs and taking the
    lessons. We have 3 science teachers and a technology ed teacher. We viewed
    the first lesson and were impressed by the way the class was conducted with
    inquiry being the forefront. I was particularly impressed by the way the
    children were coming up with all of the ideas to test in their investigations
    and coming up with viable data to report to the class. The one lesson
    actually was like 4 or 5 all in one since all of the children were conducting
    similar yet different investigations to prove their points concerning
    asteroid density, mass, or volume and how it related to crater diameter and
    depth. I see how I can manipulate the "cookbook" labs I think always run
    well but have a twist of letting the students come up with the variables to
    test. I know I have had students ask about "what would happen if we
    changed... to ...?" I have said that is a good idea but never had the time
    to investigate. Now I see how that can be accomplished.

            Now if there is a variable that needs or should be tested, should a
    teacher suggest it or just go without that option? I have wondered if that
    then could be a focus for "future study" for the kids.
