Please describe your interests in robotics.

My 8-year-old son is interested in all things electrical and mechanical. He went to a summer camp at Virginia Tech this year (2012) and got very interested in Lego robotics. He now has his first Lego Mindstorms kit, and we are starting to learn together. My son is more interested in the mechanical side of things, and I am more interested in the programming side. We are still beginners but very interested.

What types of robotics do you enjoy, and what types of robotics are you interested in learning about?

We are enjoying the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 kit, and we are interested in learning about all types of robots. We follow every news story that we can find about robots, and because it is something that we can do together, we want to continue learning together.

What other interests & hobbies do you have?

My son is interested in commercial-level fire alarm systems, air-conditioning systems, fans of all shapes and sizes (from desk fans to wind turbines), and commercial-sized shredders. I am interested in helping him pursue all of his unique interests and having a lot of fun and adventures along the way.
