Mr. Clauset Gives Presentation at National Gifted Conference in Charlotte, NC
Mr. C. traveled to Charlotte this past weekend (Nov. 3-4-5) to give a presentation at the National Association for Gifted Children Conference. His session was titled, "An Inquiry Approach to Science Instruction for the Highly Gifted Middle School Student."

With a cooler of dry ice that he had brought to the session, Mr. C. introduced workshop participants to a series of fun activities involving the mysterious properties of frozen carbon dioxide. Film canisters exploded, balloons inflated, candles were snuffed out, beakers erupted with fog, and mountains of bubbles cascaded out of containers. Key questions were: 1) Why is it happening? and 2) What does this tell us about carbon dioxide? Workshop participants thought the workshop was excellent and were curious as well about other great 7th grade HAG projects and labs including bottle rockets, balloon poppers, the Florida Keys trip, and end-of-the-year Multi-Media projects.
