So, I am currently helping a local shop owner to setup an Arduino board which will control LEDs that will be placed around the inside of the front window pane. I picked up my daughter and went to the store to show her what we have done so far (still need some more LED strips and probably some more power). With only one 4 foot LED mounted with the strobe effect, she was amazed. I told her she can make this stuff, too, with a little learning, she can make LEDs herself. She now wants an Arduino board and some LEDs for Christmas. I think I finally found something that she loves to do and I am psyched about it. She is only 11 and wants to learn low-level programming! I am thinking about getting her a starter kit... but I think she wants to jump in with me... any suggestions? I think she might get bored of reading the manual... should I just have her watch and write with me? Regardless, MY DAUGHTER WANTS TO PROGRAM! (Tiger Woods gesture)
