OK, I met with the principal and we have the final go- ahead for the club. We are going to introduce the program to the seventh and eighth graders on Nov. 30 and have our first meeting on Dec. 2.
We will be meeting every Thursday for about an hour to get started. After we get going, I'm going to suggest that we meet every Tues. and Thurs. for an hour. If it turns out that we don't get enough interest in the seventh and eighth grades, then we will open it up to the sixth grade as well. We have enough equipment and support for about 15 students.
Hopefully, after our first meeting, I will have some robot related posts that I can add to this diary. I'm particularly interested in the student responses because this will open a new view of the sciences for them. We are also going to be writing down observations and keeping a journal.
