Following are questions which have been brainstromed by our classes at Lakeview High School. Our intent is for students to research, conduct experiments, discuss our findings, and evaluate these questions or topics. We hope to develop hands on activities to help others to better understand the topics.
We will use local and worldwide resources. Below you will find the links we have used and are developing. The non active links will be researched in the future.
We value your input. If you have pertinent information about one or more of the topics, please let us know by clicking on the instructors email address. Thanks in advance!
Also if you find errors or anything that should not be here please email Jay Kuecker at firstname.lastname@example.org Just click on the address to prompt your mailer if you are using a web brouser.
