Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?

I agree. I wasn’t sure if I’m missing something...

Yeah I deferred from last year and I distinctly remember it being super active. This year's is a little mellower for some reason - I suspect it has to do with the fact that Round 1 had a welcome weekend and so some people knew each other (whereas nobody's really met each other here).

Guessing the NYC group is pretty active? Any others?

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.

I notice that when women and people of color raise issues… basically saying they are experiencing bias, microgressions, and straight up racism at work, they always have to say that they “know” it’s “not intentional” or “unintentional”. It’s almost like they can’t initiate the discussion without adding that caveat so that they’re not attacked… It seems like it’s really important to protect the feelings of the perpetrators.
