I start off the school year by going over the scientific method with my students. I ask if they know what a hypothesis is, and they say, “A hypothesis is an educated guess, and then you collect data, and you prove it right or wrong.” And I say, “Well, it’s a little bit more than that.

The air we breathe in so deeply in August is the kind saturated with promise, dense with belief and buoyant with hope.
