The FCC in USA is about to vote to get rid of the net neutrality, letting ISP's censor and throttle websites, and charge extra fees. This would allow ISP's to throttle this site, when they don't like the idea of every student learning about robotics, technologies and generally how to think.

The FCC will end net neutrality on Dec 14th if we don't convince Congress to stop them. Join the Protest and Contact Congress to save net neutrality.

If you are not from USA you should also be alarmed. Similar policies are already in the process of implementation in the other 59 countries in which FLLCasts.com is used. We should fight for our Internet freedom regardless of where we are from.

A short note for the teacher about using this two degrees of freedom attachment in a classroom and working with a group of students when building robots with this attachment. In the course up until now we demonstrated different attachments for lifting these objects in our case - hexballs because we have the hexballs. And we've naturally arrived at such an attachment. For this attachment it is interesting that you can group the students in groups of two and you can separate the process of building. So, they could start from different places but one of the students could build the front part of the attachment while the other could build the back part of the attachment and these are two naturally connected modules that they could work after that on trying to connect. So, it's a good idea to separate the students and different students could build different part of this attachment. If you have more attachments, you can also allow for some modifications and some improvements. The attachment is not perfect. And it is something that quite closely resembles the results that some of the students would arrive at so there are a lot of things to be improved in this attachment and we'll use this attachment as a base for improving in some of the next videos. We'll stop here and then we'll discuss how we can improve this attachment, what are the advantages and disadvantages of this attachment.
