Hey all,

   Just forwarding this email and info.  I met Rebecca at Noisebridge through Mitch.  She is a very passionate teacher for a local non profit and has some students coming the third week of July that want to learn how to build circuits.  Contact her at rebecca at englishcenter.edu<mailto:rebecca at englishcenter.edu> if you are interested in being involved.


-Zach

My email at the school is rebecca at englishcenter.edu<mailto:rebecca at englishcenter.edu>.

I want to briefly lay out the 5-day robotic workshop for which we are seeking an experienced instructor.  It is for a group of 30 Chinese school kids (aged 15-17).  We will provide interpreters and would like to hear proposals of a fun project that can be completed within the 5 day, 6 hours a day time period.  We suspect that the kids are likely to have had some electronic and mechanical experience as I heard from a friend in Beijing that school kids have been exposed to robotics since age 5.  Still, I would like the first day to consist of a basic introduction, and a curriculum that will allow less experienced students to learn yet allow the more experienced students to go deeper with other features, so that everyone is having fun.  At the end of the workshop they should have something completed to bring home.

Would you mind spreading the word for us within the Noisebridge community?  This is a paid position and we would like to know what the hourly/all-inclusive rate is.  Thank you in advance!

Awesome.  I scored some more keyboards and mice and should have things ready soon.  Would you mind forwarding John's info to me so I can coordinate with him directly about the oscilloscopes?  and what hours are you normally at the school?

Thanks!

-Zach

I love that the supply stations will be much loved!   You are welcome to visit anytime!  I am not sure what additional equipment John has, but he seemed to have had a channel to acquire via old school contact.

Hi Rebecca,

  I want to thank you and John again for those wonderful bench supply stations.  They will be much loved.  And we can definitely use more so please let me know when / if others are available.  I could make my way out there and pick them up too, it would be a good excuse to see your space and how the laptops are fairing and meet some students!


Myself and other NBers worked into the late hours yesterday fixing all those computers too.  We have 6 towers for you and I am tracking down keyboards and mice for them.


Sincerely,

Zach

Hey Zach, unfortunately i have plans in the evenings both Thursday and Friday.  I will check if John alone can make it, unless somehow you're available one day during the day?

Hi Zach, we were back on Saturday!  Would like to set a time to deliver the oscilloscopes.  Are you available either this Thursday(any time for us at this point) or Friday afternoon?

Look forward to it!


Rebecca

Hi Zach, it is going well -John confirmed that we can bring 2 or 3 oscilloscopes over.  We are unexpectedly called to go to Asia, yes my second trip to Asia within two weeks back.   We take off this Thursday and I have been trying to pull things together in a very short time.  It has been crazy. John and I are planning to visit you again in a couple of weeks after we return from Asia to drop off the oscilloscopes.  Can we reconnect then?

Thanks for sending this!  I forwarded it to people and it's great to see the students using them :)  Any update on the oscilloscope donation your director was talking about?  We would love to have one!

Sincerely,

Zach
