Apologies! This is somewhat off your topic Michael,

But sometime ago I offered to upload 5 booklets I had prepared for 
introducing junior high school students (11-14years?) to OpenSCAD that 
teachers could use in their classes.  However I have lost contact with 
the person who encouraged me to do it at the time.  They involve an 
introductory task, two more complicated ones, and two more as challenge 

Do you think such items are a good idea?  I was thinking of having the 
booklets in .pdf format on the site with a couple of links in the 
appropriate section for teachers to find them and use them. OpenSCAD is 
fantastic tool to both reinforce mathematics and science in the virtual 
world, and as well through 3-D printing in the real world as well.  
Publishing them in OpenOffice would be fine as well for people to more 
easily adapt the booklets to their own needs.

If you are not personally available, does/can anybody else see value in 
this idea?  I am continually amazed at the heady concepts canvassed on 
these pages and it is one of my favourite feeds (even though I 
contribute almost nothing), and while these simple projects are 
definitely at the opposite end to those discussions, I am hoping 
bundling them into a handy teaching format may give some teachers out 
there inspiration to start the ball rolling on a teaching resource page?

Cheers, Rob
