Thank you to forums user jwhendy for writing in about the awesome project he recently completed with his daughter!

He writes:

Wasn’t sure where to post this, but wanted to share a project I recently created with my 6yr old daughter for a school project. I had an Arduino starter kit and sensor pack lying around, so that’s what we used. I’m posting this to seed ideas for others who might want to do something similar, as well as to offer a token of appreciation to Adafruit for great supplies and an amazing set of tutorials and information. I had only dabbled with my Arduino prior to the project, and learned how to do just about everything involved exclusively from the tutorials here.

Here’s the finished “robot.” Her name is Violet 🙂
