Character error 

Whenever Worf interacts with the teacher, he addresses her as "Miss Kyle." However, when Troi speaks with Worf on the bridge about the field trip, she refers to the teacher as "Mrs. Kyle."

When the senior officers enter the bridge after the initial briefing on the Soliton Wave by Dr Ja'Dar, Deanna, speaking to Worf about Alexander's teacher, should have referred to MISS Kyle rather than MRS Kyle.

Plot holes 

The computer twice reports the location of Alexander. But Alexander is not wearing a comm badge, which is how the computer keeps track of where anyone is.

Revealing mistakes 

In the holodeck scene, Worf orders the computer to "freeze program". Yet the smoke behind him as well as the ground fog around Alexander still continue to move.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Since the ships sensors could detect Alexander (the computer even states his name) they could have performed a site to site transport of Alexander. However, LaForge stated shortly after the computer states Alexander's name, that transporters are offline.

Plot holes 

During a crisis, Alexander gets trapped in the Bio Lab, and Worf and Commander Riker are sent down to get him out. It would be very unusual that two Bridge officers can be spared at this critical moment, while there are over a thousand people on board the Enterprise D, many of whom should be able to get to the Lab much faster. It should be acknowledged, though, that Worf would certainly not be standing idly by while his son is in mortal danger. And a worrying father wouldn't be any good on the Bridge anyway.

Revealing mistakes 

When Worf strains to lift the "extremely heavy" beam off the trapped Alexander, as he struggles to lift it the beam wobbles quite a bit - it's obviously a lightweight prop.
