In November, several Woods Hole Field Center employees (VeeAnn Cross, Mark Capone, Becky Deusser, and Jill Rozycki) started a 6-week program, called Project Inquire, to work one-on-one with gifted students looking for challenges. Each mentor helps a 4th-, 5th-, or 6th-grade student select a topic of interest that covers material outside of the regular classroom studies. The pair then creates a project to show work and accomplishments. Projects range from chemistry experiments to learning Italian. This year, Becky's student is running mineral-identification experiments. VeeAnn's student wants to dissect poison ivy! The others have not yet decided on a final topic.
