I have been trying to include the students on building machines.
Heather Borg agrees that anything we do is a learning
experience.  No need for them to understand everything.
If we allow them to hold the screwdriver and type at the
keyboard, at least SOME will sink in.  And thats a GOOD thing.

So, for me, at least...  I plan to do ALL work over at
the school.  An I intend to touch the machines as little
as possible.  There are students who find it fun to
hook up wires, disk drives, and are happy to click
where you tell them to click, and type what you tell them
to type.

If we are just doing admin til next semester, I think thats
OK.  As long as the kids are learning admin.
