Add/edit Wondering Areas

Each wondering area is a major direction of inquiry (e.g., how do we breathe?), which is identified by the project members based on their interest and emergent problems. Under each area may have one or more idea threads set up for discussing more specific issues (e.g. how lungs work; how air travels through our body).
