Getting your kids started with electronics projects is a good idea. Solutions such as the Piper make it more fun for kids to build electronics. It is a toolbox that enables your kids to assemble their own electronics, add switches, make an LED proximity sensor, add motion detectors, and more. It comes with a Raspberry Pi 2 and a plywood case. You also get a 7″ LED screen, a powerbank, a DIY Minecraft controller, and everything you need to get started.
The Piper makes building electronics more fun and easier for kids. You can find it on Kickstarter.
