Well, after a couple of weeks we finally received our grant. We ordered the robot parts and software for the robot club and have started working on the curriculum. The last step is to meet with the principal and have him OK the details. We will probably meet just once a week to start.
If anybody else is interested in starting a robot club at their school, I would be happy to share the information that I have. I can also provide you with some pretty compelling language for you to use in obtaining your grant. There seems to be plenty of money out there for worthwhile school programs so there is probably a grant in your local area just waiting for someone to apply for it.
