Top 5 Electronic Projects For Your Child

Many years ago when I was a kid I remember coming home, finishing my homework and then going straight to my Electronic Project kit that my parents bought me, sometimes I would mess around for hours making all sorts of cool things like radios and blinking LEDs. Today, (20ish years later) I still find myself tinkering about with micro-controllers and other electronics and can honestly say that if I didn’t have the opportunity to play around with electronics when I was young, I would be a little lost in today’s technology driven world. The reason for this article is to provide you with that opportunity that I got all those years ago  to get a step up above everyone else when it comes to technologies of the near future and believe me technology is growing rapidly and so is the demand for Tech Jobs. So if your a parent or a child yourself I hope you find these project recommendations below helpful in your journey. Young to old listing
