We'll need to write up a "Teacher's Guide" for each activity.

>>> Thanks for the update, Walter and congratulations to all the newly
>>> elected members.
>>> I would also like to help Samson and Vipul with outreach.
>>> Would also like to share that we recently hosted an 'hour of code' with
>>> the ACM student chapter of our college in which we went to a school and
>>> taught basic programming to the students of 5th grade.
>>> I was wondering if Sugar Labs also participates in the ACM Hour of code
>>> which takes place every year.
>>> Would also like to discuss the possibility of partnering with Code.org
>>> and to see if we can list an activity here:
>>> Which I believe would help in outreach and supporting a bigger cause as
>>> I would request everyone to please share any relevant inputs on this.
>> I've watched with dismay over the years as we have gone from summer of
>> code to month of code to week of code to day of code to hour of code. That
>> said, I know nothing about marketing and obviously this is a good outreach
>> (1) Sugar on RPi install party
>> (2) Sugar on a Stick install party
>> (3) Write your first interactive paint program in Turtle Blocks
>> (4) Write your first song in Music Blocks
>> (5) Do X, Y, or Z with a Sugarizer activity.
> Thanks for these insights, I think we can list most of these as
> interactive modules here:
> So that people conducting more such programs can also be provided with our
> resources which can be used for the HOC.
> Though, will have to check how to go about with listing them and are there
> any guidelines that need to be followed.
>>> Happy holidays!
>>> Thanks & best regards
