Thanks for covering this Robert! San Bruno is lucky to have you and your wonderful wife supporting our community :-) One more thing... Check out the impressive work Paul Linden has put into our website - www.SanBrunoEdFound.org - While you're there... Please use that "Donate" tab because the size of our 2014 K-8 School Grant Program depends what you give in 2013 :-) Thanks again! Scott Curtner

Thank you for this Robert. If any of the students want to go beyond that hour and learn how to code, feel free to refer them over to http://www.visualbasictutorial.net. It's a code school for absolute beginners.
