Project Title Technology and Robotics

Project Description We are conducting a Technology Summer Camp for students going into 5th grade. The camp runs from June 5-8 and June 12-15 from 8:00-12:00 CST. There will be approx.15 students. Our school is technologically advanced. All 3-5 grade students have a wireless laptop. Students use robotics kits, digital cameras, videocameras and learn to download and edit, burn CD's and DVD's. They research projects on the internet and create presentations using PPt, flash and photostory3. We are actually more interested in the robotics and technology of the microscope than we are the insect. Would there be any way one of you could have a video conference with us about the microscope itself and it's robotic capabilities before or after we use the Bugscope?
