John Langkals of Explorers Post 891 asked me to forward this request
on.  His organization is looking for OSU students or others who would
be interested in teaching High School students Python.

They meet at OSU Hitchcock Hall every Wednesday from 7pm to 9:30pm.
Instructors can go early as needed.

If you are interested you can contact John at: 327.3732 or langkals.1 at osu.edu

More details from John follow:

Over the past thirty years we have been involved in an outstanding
career educational organization open to area high school students. We
would like to approach the OSU Open Source Club and the Central Ohio
Python Users Group with the possibility of finding a few individuals
interested in volunteering teaching Python to area high school
students.  We are currently hosted by the OSU Department of
Engineering and have access to a computer lab.

As a computer post, our teaching focuses on the UNIX operating system.
The first class series, Beginning Unix, is an introduction to
navigating the command line and Bash shell scripting. Then there is an
end-of-class exam the students must pass in order to continue. The
second class series is usually systems administration, web design, or
a programming class like Java. In the past, we have held a
microprocessors, C programming, ruby, and other classes. After the
introductory program, class selection is a very interactive process,
with the students providing input on topics they would like to learn.
In the past, the students were interested in learning basic robotics
and game programming.

Our post usually meets every Wednesday from 7 to 9:30pm. It's an
awesome time and a lot of fun for an outstanding cause. Let me know
what you think.

Thank you,
John
