"Interesting. Why do they want to measure CO2 output for wood pellets vs corn? Life cycle-wise it doesn't seem that it would make a difference. Are they also testing heating capacity of the 2 fuels? Maybe CO2 emitted per certain amount of heat…"

"Yepper; the mini-maize is ready to be moved to pots and the fast plants seeds will start in a couple weeks. I have one research team proposing to test the dwarfs vs. control in Accelerase enzyme. I think their plan (for now) is to snip each plant…"

"Here are links to some of the documents I used. In some cases I had to modify existing GLBRC documents; in others I created from scratch. I'll have more comments on some things soon (my lunch just started, so I'll brb). The Play-doh lab…"

"PS I'm thinking a lot about the Carbon Cycle Hallways activity and I'm worried it's maybe a) too complicated and b) requires too many students. Would it make sense to do a similar activity but with toothpicks and foam balls…"
