My pleasure,

Here is a link to the slides I used for a workshop I presented to teachers in my school district last week. It contains explained sample code for activities we did with the robots and some background on electronic circuits.

A number of the participants expressed interest in creating class sets of robots at their own schools, and we even discussed starting and after school extra curricular robotics league.
