|We have donut eating contests to see who has the best legs. We paint our pigs. We argue about which time zone we are in. About 400,000 of us gather together to watch cars go around in a circle. We also build robots.Yep, our cultural norm is a bit different. - Andy Baker [more]|

for next SCRRF meeting
Ken Berry wanted me to speak on his behalf tonight, and we ran out of time.
1. Barbara Christy from Loyola is looking for 5 high school teachers who
would like to participate in an engineering internship this summer. Wanted:
Math and Science teachers who would like to bring engineering into their
schools. Anyone who is interested please contact Nancy Mc at
Ciotach51@aol.com for additional information.
2. Ken Berry from CSUN heads up a national group called RoboEducators. If
there are SCRRF members who would also like to be a part of his list as well
we will be glad to add you to this growing list. He is working with
educators and industry to produce robotics curriculum. He also heads up a
program on a middle school mars rover program. Please contact Nancy Mc at
Ciotach51@aol.com with your contact information.
3. Would anyone be interested in forming a robotics league? There is a
successful program run by Mike McIntyre from Michigan. If there is
interest, we can have Mike come out and show us how it works. Please
contact Nancy Mc at Ciotach51@aol.com
4.Ken also has a lead on getting the Los Angeles Convention Center for the
2004 FIRST Competition. The cost for the venue would be minimal. He would
like to host a robotics conference at the same time and will need committee
to help organize and host the conference.
5. The RoboEducators Leadership Committee met in Las Vegas last December to
discuss the production of a 9th grade robot curriculum. The major areas
have been identified for the 6 sixweek modules. Industry partners who can
assist with the production costs have been approached and teachers are being
sought to produce the educational product. If you are interested in
participating in this project, please contact Nancy Mc at Ciotach51@aol.com.
6. Ken is also interested in producing summer camp programs in the South
Bay Area and at CSUN. If you would like additional information please
contact nancy Mc at Ciotach51@aol.com.
Have a great, and good building.
