  1. I am a 8th grade teacher in NC and came across your site while researching some information about robotics for my tech class this year. I just wanted to thank you first of all for the great information and articles about robotics, and second let you know about a site we are putting together for teachers that might have some useful information for your site.

    We would love it if you could write a few articles for us, or link to some of the current articles to help us spread trusted resources to other teachers. I have included a link to the site below in hopes you might want to write some articles for us or link to it.

    Thanks and keep the great resources coming 🙂
