11 year old kids make “mouse alert system”


Marc @ MAKE writes…

I absolutely love this video posted by Jessica Wolpert. It’s (3) eleven-year-old girls working on an Arduino project. It looks like the final project is a “mouse alert system” that blinks the eyes of the cat when the mouse gets too close. I am so happy to see kids experimenting with electronics and micro-controllers…


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. ELEVEN!? man I feel old. So I’m thinking that as a 31 year old I REALLY should be onto something more challenging than farting about with Arduinos! 🙂

  2. I think when I was 11, I was not dedicated enough to learn to program a microcontroller. I am amazed that we have 11-year-olds building something like this. At (almost) 29 my Arduino projects are still pretty basic… :p

    This is AMAZING!

  3. Eleven? Whattt? I started when I was 13 (three years ago) and didn’t understand anything back then…wow smart girls. Keep it up! I see them having all having very bright futures!
