This does not count as research (see rules at right), but I spent a good chunk of the day up at middle school CIS 303, talking on a couple of panels for "College and Career Day". I learned that middle schoolers (age 12-ish) love astronomy. Also, that they think a bachelors degree and a PhD is way too much time spent in school. The best question I was asked: "Do you use the scientific method?". My answer: "No!" That shocked a few of the teachers!
