middle school observations:

while the kids are more flexible and their imaginations less constrained than the high school kids we've worked with, they need more guidance from an adult in choosing and developing a project. 

they tend to dream up more unrealistic projects, but are generally less attached to a particular idea than a high school student would be. their presentation won't take place until may, and we're only driving up to vail once a month to work with them, but we've definitely seen progress since our november visit.. plus we didn't have to drive through a snowstorm!
