Here is a video from March 1st. I took my telepresence robot to an elementary school in D.C. The grades were 2nd through 6th. A friend from Australia drove the robot by using the Internet. He interacted by asking and answering questions. One child asked him if he had a kangaroo. Billy replied he saw one this morning in his yard but now it was11:30 PM where he was. So he brought out his fresh water pet turtle to show the kids. We also asked the kids why it was 110 F where he was and we had 3 inches of snow this morning. A brief geography lesson happened that I am sure they will remember because it was from Billy. The other thing I am sure of is an ear full of stories the parents received that night about robots and an australian turtle named "zeak". STEAM == science, technology, engineering, arts, and Math.

I'm Back...... from 2 weeks in Brevard County. While there, made video of old surfing buddy of mine from early 70s. We are about the same age but Steve has more anti-aging atoms than me. Password for the video is "waterman" without the quotes. Place is Canal 54, on the south border of Brevard. A cold front was passing through so the skies were a little dark. Video time is 5 minutes.
