From the mail bag… Building Drawdios with Kids! A Holiday Activity. Stacey writes –
Teaching groups of kids (in this case, family) how to solder and various areas of circuitry and physics using Drawdio kits.
A lot of the “learn to solder” kits are boring. Why not have the kids make a fun, educational, and “annoying as heck” toy? Even the 8 and 10yo kids (all brothers, sisters, or cousins) had no problem understanding how it works and how to put it together (mind you that the 14yo is learning matrix convolutions, so this might be a bit more of an advanced group of kids.
That’s my family….literally full of nerds and I love them). The kit was also great in dusting off some of the 40+yo Engineers in my family. Their names are Griffen, Cassie, Morlan, and Calder just in case 😉
