We had a bit of a miscommunication at first: our group went to the elementary school for the meeting, while Joseph went to GW's campus at the same time. Despite the confusion at first, we managed to make it back to campus to meet him for our orientation meeting. We discussed ideas for our semester-long project and are working now on finding another meeting time to discuss our next steps.
