Re: [N8VEM-S100:5026] Micro Computers your youngsters

The Micro-KIM by Briel Computers might be a good starting point.

Also any of the Arduino's are inexpensive and well supported.

My 11 year old son and I have been kicking around doing a

something simple that he can solder up and run simple program (basic)

1 to a million, make lights blink, something along that line.

Obviously S100 is way beyond his ability, The Raspberry pi is an option
but it's already assembled.

Something we could breadboard and then spin up a simple PCB would be great.

What do ya think? Any ideas suggestions would be appreciated.
