Lots of extraneous information there Hands. Considering there's no election coming up I'll assume an internet video isn't to blame. At this point in time what difference does it make anyway? The system worked!
Yea, no. My kids go to a an "Open" school organized under the local public school system. Anyone with half a brain can find it via google. I proudly state with no quantitative data that we have the largest percentage of students that actually do their own science fair projects. My 5 year old worked out a plausible hypothesis based on what she wanted to do anyway. I just couldn't get her to actual make the poster.
U of Michigan? I hear they have some good faculty there. I run the science fair at my kids' school and one kid made a cloud chamber. He had a QR code that linked to a You Tube video of an event. Damn good.
