Arduino is a platform that creates inquisitive kids which leads to curious adults. I would encourage kids to learn Arduino as a Hobby which will have many advantages on the kids, a few are listed below
Develop Problem Solving Skills: Problem-solving is necessary for in life and its starts by waking up early morning. Do i need to wake up now? its too early?
Fun Activities : Arduino can be fun to all age groups. Watching a few creative ideas and projects i am sure the kids can create a project of their own. Never underestimate them.
Learn Science, Math and Engineering : Education here is not limited to technology or programming. Arduino will cover a lot of school subjects too in a fun way.
Be a Creator : Build you own projects and showcase them, make your kids young scientist.
To Learn the Arduino we will use Graphic programming for Kids which supports Adruino Boards and Arduino IDE for teens
The difference about the Arduino Projects here will be Simplified for all age groups. Even a Kid will be able to learn from the projects if he is able to read.
As from my experience, Kids do not need to dive deep in to the subject. A few applications that can amaze them can keep them fueled up to learn Electronics and modern technology.
To Start learning Arduino Click here. New projects will be uploaded every week.
