If the project is creative, then you have to be creative in your presentation. You might create a metaphor of a seed growing into a tree, and display charts that show the growth of the main characters. Well, I am not familiar with the book, but I can surely pull together a creative project and sell it. It is done with brain storming and organizing thoughts. Another metaphor could be of birth, the womb,and then the growth, and then the birth out into the world. But maybe that would be too much for your class. To be creative, some things are charts, portfolios, games, agree/disagree discussion sheets, breaking the class into groups, hand outs, power point programs, using the overhead projector, acting very excited, then, writing a quiz and testing them on what they learned. Then, you thank them and leave the stage. Color is considered creative. If it is just a short project, no sweat, just find the passages and make your song or poem or charts or clay figures or illustrative metaphor and have some fun showing your creativity. Look at the class for eye contact, smile, and bring out the main points. The idea probably is that your presentation will take the place of their having to read it. How fun. Go for the old R & D, and dress up too. It is good for a high grade and shows professionalism, so the class will respond as if to a grown up and not a young person.

Question by WiseMan: Are hip surface piercings becoming a new fad?
Today, I was on the subway on the way to work and I saw this young girl (looks like mid-20s) that had her midriff exposed and she had two hip surface piercings on both sides of her hips. It looked sexy, but also shocked me because I’ve never seen a woman in public that had this kind of piercing. Are surface piercings becoming popular now or something?

Characterization and Chemical Modification of the Silica Surface

Oxide surface materials are widely used in many applications, in particular where chemically modified oxide surfaces are involved. Indeed, in disciplines such as separation, catalysis, bioengineering, electronics, ceramics, etc. modified oxide surfaces are very important. In all cases, the knowledge of their chemical and surface characteristics is of great importance for the understanding and eventual improvement of their performances. This book reviews the latest techniques and procedures in th

Microelectronics: Electron gas on the surface of an insulator opens the way to multifunctional transistors
Researchers have succeeded in creating a conductive layer on the surface of strontium titanate (SrTiO3), a transparent insulating material considered to be very promising for the development of future microelectronics applications. Two nanometers thick, this conductive layer is a two-dimensional metallic electron gas (2DEG) that is part of the insulating material.
