Alan Su is an engineer at Google, making the tubes of YouTube run smoothly. But for years, he has also spent an afternoon a week enriching young minds through teaching.

Alan believes in the power of citizens to play a role in education, and he backs that talk with action: not only does he himself teach, but he has mobilized dozens of Google colleagues to teach as well.

His latest apprenticeship with Citizen Schools involved teaching kids how to build robots, and then program Android phones to make them perform various tasks. Check out the journey they go on together.
