Nathan's Investigation Synopsis:
Nathan isn't sure what he's doing for his science project, but he does know how to practice his tennis serve. While he's serving at the park, he meets Caelif and Ortho, who have been disagreeing about an answer to a very pressing question. Nathan realizes that, by helping his new friends, he will also have a great science project for his biology class. Nathan, Caelif, Ortho, and a swarm of their friends conduct a controlled experiment. Rather than jumping to conclusions, a logical scientific conclusion is reached.
