Folks, we just put another rover on Mars. Storm water runoff is only a problem ? The storm water runoff problem has to be solved because it has to be done within limitations of available taxation / money. Just print /digitize the money out of thin air like the corporate imperialists do to invade third world countries and steal resources and many problems would just go away / easily be dealt with. Folks, look at all of the tax funded research that has turned to magnificent outcomes. Storm water runoff ? Really ?

Every post he makes is essentially the same thing over and over and over again. I'm really suprised a smart guy like you even reads his repetitious drivel anymore.

It is great to see our schools offering opportunities for students to choose to be challenged. Ideally every student needs opportunities to be involved in challenging and rewarding collaborative team learning that solves a real problem. It is good to see these kind of initiatives in our schools. Excellent teaching. Might work for every classroom include some ways to creatively do something similar as part of the learning routine?
