The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2011. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

I really like this activity. Easy to setup and I am sure the students would find it exciting. Lots of things to consider. Not a lot of programming involved so this is mostly for “building” kinds of events.
Compares strategies used by students in a competition. Some used math, some didn’t. Their scores varied WIDELY!!
Another possible set of devices to use in teaching students how to interact with input and output devices
If you want to do a lesson on fonts, this site might be a good resource.
This isn’t a teaching site. It’s just super cool!!! Very fun. Give it a try.
Wellesley College’s Robotic Design Studio introduces liberal arts students to the essence of engineering. Participants learn how to design, assemble, and program robots made out of LEGO parts, sensors, motors, and small embedded computers. The course has no prerequisites and, since its inception in 1996, has attracted students from a wide range of backgrounds. This monthlong experience culminates in a robot exhibition where students show off their working robots.
Robotic Design Studio represents an alternative vision of how robot design can be used to teach engineering in a way that is more inclusive and provides more room for artistic expression than contest-centered formats.
