"My child absolutely LOVES this product! He has learned so much and loves to add additional lines of codes to the learning modules to expand his knowledge via trial and error."
"My son is enjoying this setup and online lessons/projects have been fun and educational."
"I purchased this kit for my 11 year old grandson and he told me he really likes it. His goal is to attend Georgia Tech. and major in computer engineering. This is a good start along with his current classes in middle school."
