That sounds great. Good luck!

You should definitely do a bit of an ad for the "Schools Project",  
and say that we're very much interested in working with schools with  
respect to Wikimedia/Wikipedia.

It sounds like they're after something more than just a presentation,  
if possible - it might be worth just pulling up Wikipedia on the  
screen, and showing them various parts of it. Hopefully they'll ask  
you lots of questions...
