I gave two presentations at University of Texas of the Permian Basin on Monday, March 1, 2010. For the three-hour morning presentation, 246 schoolchildren and their teachers and coordinators from the gifted and talented programs in Odessa and Midland, and some other educators as well, attended. One boy solved the knight's tour as reported in the local paper. Another local paper also covered the story, and I was interviewed by a TV reporter too.
For the evening one-hour presentation, I had a smaller crowd of about 20 people. For both presentations, participants tried different lesson plans and activities from my books.
