Candid Student Reports
The following (emails) were written by members of the Modeling Your World, Session A, 2000 during the second day of the program. Some elements
may have been removed for various reasons, but the text that remains is in the
student's own words.
Today was my first day of camp. The teachers were really fun to talk to,
and the other campers were really nice. I especially liked experimenting with
the forest fires. "Seed, Bush, Tree" was fun, too. Finding about the O-Zone
that was pollution. I Also liked looking at Storm. I'm really looking forward
to camp tomorrow!!
Today I was more then ready to go to
sleep. I liked playing "Seed, Bush, Tree". I liked learning
about the forest fire and how they spread. I had fun using the computers with
the forest. Today I did, learn alot. I really like Stephanie as a teacher!!
Today I thought class was kind of boring because of
that ozone layer thing, I wasn't too interested in that. The forest fire thing
was cool and it helped me learn more about preventing forest fires and how they
spread. I liked the game "Seed, Bush, Tree," that we played. It was fun and I
didn't lose which made it a lot better. I love to talk with the teachers in my
spare time and they are fun to be around.

Today in Internet Science Explorations we
learned how to use the program called Stella. We also thaught that the Stella
program was a very useful tool. We also learned about the simulation, rabbits.
I enjoyed the forest fire activity. It
helped me learn a lot about how forest fires work. Also, I enjoyed learning
about ozone, and what contributes to it. I think that this could have been
improved if the teacheres were better at troubleshooting problems with the ozone
I had a great day. Today I saw a simultion of forest fires.
I learned how they spread. I also learned air actually contains lead! Thanks.
I learned about different ozone pollution
Today in Modeling Your World we worked on the ozone layer.
At the first session we discussed forest fires, the causes, and some stuff with
a rope. We simulated forest fires on the internet which was also fun. When we
got back from the break we did things dealing with the VOx, NOx, and confusing
things. I eventually got the hang of it but I am still a little questionable.
It was a good day, and please excuse the spelling errors(i'm ready to get to
Today we had fun.We liked the ozone activity.

It (even though I know "it" is an unscientific word)
was fun. The forest fires were interesting to watch. The ozone part was
confusing, but that could be because I wasn't listening to instructions. I
thought it was enjoyable.
