After the MW AARST conference...

After attending the Friday morning session of the MW AARST conference, I traveled to Champaign-Urbana for the State Science Fair. I discovered a radon project completed by a 7th grade student from Belleville, IL. His sixth grade teacher had died of lung cancer, was a non-smoker and her house was found to have elevated radon levels. The young man responded to this situation by testing a number of homes in St. Claire county around Belleville and he successfully presented the results. I encouraged him to continue his efforts, to consider incorporating some long-term tests, and to apply for a mini-grant from the Midwest Chapter of AARST! Several of you on this email list were acknowleged for helping with the project including Patrick Daniels and Cindy Ladage! Kudos!
