My daughter (who is ten) made a market analysis and convinced me that she absolutely needed an Arduino micro-controller to "build things". Having looked at what others have done on youtube and knowing that the Arduino can be programmed in Scratch (which she has already played with), I ordered a breadboard kit (this one).
I'll tell you about it.
- The Arduino and kit are great. So is programming it in a C like language.
- The Modkit/Scratch option does not seem to be available.
