I did my presentation to parents for Family Science. Not only are there 
no bright stars at night, we were also graced with a horrendous storm in 
the afternoon that left students at school because of flooding. So, 
instead of 67 parents signed up, I only had seventeen (and lots of students).

The presentation went well; we went to the sights, I had practiced, I 
made additional slides of categories of volcanoes and had the parents do 
the labs Dr. Olson did, including the kitty litter. They loved it. They 
are enthusiastic about Mars; I invited them to do their own independent 
research and post their findings. The one surprise - not one of the 
parents knew how to use the protrator. 

Thanks, Jan, for sending a well organized package; I will return it asap.
