Thanks for the kind words and for passing the link on Pat!

This video started out as a powerpoint presentation. I just wanted to show all the great new technologies that are in our environment that can help clean our environment and make it more safe! Eventually I had gathered all these pictures and ideas and decided to write a song to tie it all together (I call this my "melodic-mnemonic method" -- the melody and music and sounds act a mnemonic device, just as they did with Conjunction Junction and School House Rocks, as you mentioned!).

You can all do the same thing (you don't have to write a song, though!) for the midterm - - take ideas that you have learned in the first 7 chapters of the textbook and bring them to life with images and, if you like, sounds, and create a powerpoint presentation, just as if you were going to give a talk in class!

Thanks again! As the saying goes, "we appreciate your appreciation!"
