      RE: [hreg] project ideas

      I have been to this place and it offers a lot in the areas you mention plus lots more.
      A little too far from Houston to be practical but the site may be worth a visit for inspiration.

      Does anyone know of similar locations/ organisations within a days drive or so of Houston?

      Your list has been forwarded to one of the outstanding technical high
      schools in Houston for their consideration.
