I read your letter to discuss-lfm about your Red Rover experience and wanted 
you to help us get started.  Below is a list of materials we think we need to

buy based on your letter.  We have interent access and an IBM computer and 
the appropriate modem needed.

$499  Red Rover starter kit (camera, cables, etc)
$475  Lego Dacta starter kit
$414  Lego Dacta extra kits for 6 groups
 $84  6 motors
$1472  this is enough materials for seven groups, but does not include 
	extra gears
Does this sound right to you?  We are currently seeking funding from 
various sources and I wanted to make sure I knew what to buy and how much 
money was involved.  Did you spend this much?

Does the Red rover Starter set include the following or do I need to 
purchase them?
	serial interface box (what is this for?)
	serial cables
	Lego Dacta Building Set #9702
	curriculum materials

Thanks for your help!!  Any advice would be appreciated.
