    Is there any interest in FIRST robotics? I'm more interested in doing something K-8 as thats where my kids currently are.

    Hey y'all. I've taught a couple of Python classes over at St
    Matthews and a 4H robotics class. I'm gearing up for a 8 week Intro to Programming (Python) and I'm excited to talk to you guys about what's been working for your efforts.

      Hi Darren, that is awesome! I look forward to learning more, I have never tied in a lot of robotics but I know that is a great way to connect with kids; they love it!

    Darn, you changed the meeting to Wednesday. I really wanted to attend, but have other commitments that night. You might want to throw RoboCode into the discussion ring as well.
