What did we learn from this experiment?

Mr. F :-)

The Agastya Crew!

Thanks to Scofield (and my wonderful advisory) for helping to raise over $100 to help kids in rural India learn from the Agastya Foundation science vans!! You all rock.

Mr. Forde :-)

PS- we know the van is pretty beat...but it has a lot of mileage on it!
