    I teach at BASE (like AFSE but in the Bronx). I'd love to come to the event but it's really hard for me to get all the way to AFSE, especially on a school night. I'm planning to use the Light-Bot HoC activity to allow my students to teach members of the community (hopefully families and/or students from other schools in the building) a little about what programming is and what we do at BASE. I'd be happy to share my plans with others (whether or not I'm able to make it on Tuesday).

    The workshop on programming in the Processing computer language is this coming Sunday Dec 8. You can register at <ptnycdec8.eventbrite.com>. Processing programmers who are willing to help those who are beginners can register for free!

    Want an easy way to get started Processing? Here's a program I've written (based on "Learning Processing" by Shiffman) that illustrates a system I'm sure you'll recognize and which you can use to get started. Go to: <tinyurl.com/simplegravity>. You can run and modify my program as you like. I've put comments in the program (after the "//" symbols) explaining in some detail how it works. Maybe you can think of a creative way to modify it to help students gain deeper insight into the system!

    Please let me know what you think!

    Talking about lesson plans, I wrote 6 for Billion Oyster Project in the summer.

      Are they programming lessons? Where can they be found?

    Cool. I wrote a bunch of content area lesson plans (and may do more over the next few weeks.... I just got started on Science). They all use Scratch. You can find them here: http://scratched.media.mit.edu/user/14320/contributions
