Arduino 1.0 is here!!! It's all the rage, everyone is talking. Go take a look and make something today.
Well my niece, brother and dad found an old picture of the first robot I built back in the 1980's. I was still in high school. It was powerful enough the kids could ride it around the house.

Nice calculator. Should keep this around just in case...
Now that is cool.
Good introduction video on using a breadboard for your electronic experiments.
This looks so cool. It is just very pricy. Not sure I could afford this for the kids I'm working with.
