    This is one of the coolest ways to ignite a kid’s imagination and passion for technology. The homeschool co-op that my wife & I are a part of (Soaring Eagles in Georgia) has a Robotics Team, and the kids that are involved are truly excelling in their robotics skills, including creating “battle bots” and the like. These types of programs can really help fuel the fire of education by way of using a hands-on approach. Good stuff.

    I went to something similar to this when I was younger in Florida. Although our project just involved blinking LEDs and driving tones from a small speaker, it did help me realize my passion for semiconductors and electronics. It was definitely one of the earlier drivers that pushed me toward electronics engineering. I can’t wait to do this stuff with my Son!
