William has a LEGO Mindstorm that he plays with in fits and spurts. He will play with it for hours each day for a week or so, and then it goes back on his shelf for a while. Today we got together with some other homeschoolers, and some great students from the U of Guelph who gave all of the kids an over view of how to build and program their Mindstorm robots. I think that it was just what William needed to get him back engaged with it. Having the university students on hand, who know a lot more about the programming piece than I do, worked wonders.
