    That Monday afternoon, in high-school gyms across America, kids were battling for the only glory American culture seems to want to dispense to the young these days: sports glory. But at Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta, California, in a gear-cluttered classroom, a different type of “cool” was brewing. A physics teacher with a dream - the first public high-school teacher ever to win a MacArthur Genius Award - had rounded up a band of high-I.Q. students who wanted to put their technical know-how to work.

    Mr. says: "High school drama...too much"
    "Great fun!"
    Overall

    What a fun and inspiring story. Makes me want to go back and be a robot-making cool dude. And, by the way Goleta is go - lee - tah (not go - let - a).
