Robots, Electricity and Boys
My 7 year old is wild about robots. He's talking MIT for college (which cracks me up - better get a scholarship, son), planning to commission plating from a metalworker for his robots and wants to make one that cleans house and babysit for free(wouldn't that be great!). Looking around for some projects to help encourage him, I found our copy of "Science with Batteries" from "Science Activites" book. He's learning about circuits and having fun making blinking light houses, emergency vehicles with flashing lights and many more fun things. Its amazing how much a motivated 7 year old can learn! I guess next, we'll have to learn about attaching motors to our circuits. Wish us luck!
