Camden County College math professor Lester Owens thought technology would solve many of education's problems, but many of his students wanted facetime, not FaceTime. With a master's degree in instructional technology, he had designed a website with practice problems, created video lessons he could send to students' phones, and integrated clickers into his classes to instantly poll students.

One of the sides to a Dec. 7 article on the Strategic Defense Initiative, "Star Wars," notes the benefits the research will have in developing technology for everyday uses and everyday folks. The last big technology-overload period, the effort to put a man on the moon, did in fact create an abundance of technology for everyday uses. One of the most notable is Teflon. Since our President has benefited so greatly from that discovery, it is no surprise that he is willing to risk the future of the human race.

They recently won the Philadelphia BEST Robot competition and placed 27th out of 43 teams in a national competition in Alabama.
