EEME Teaching Your Child About Electronics

Hi Neighbors!

Here is my last review for the TOS Crew until after the holidays.  We received a the Project Genius Light kit from EEME.  What EEME does is each month you receive a new kit to build with your child.  It is recommended for ages 7-12, but I am sure children even a little older would enjoy them.  Each new project builds on the last.

We received our Project Genius Light kit, which contained everything we needed for this project.  the directions estimated setting aside one hour for the actual work.  After you have set aside the time, you log on to their website for the video that instructs you on how to build your project.  I allowed my 18 year old son to do the project with his sister. I really wish I had this option when he was younger.  He was always the take things apart and put them back together child.  Book lessons bored him, but when he could get his hands on something and take it apart, it held his attention for hours.

Anyway, he sat down with M and started the video.  They had all their pieces set out and ready to go.  I have a short video showing some of the pictures we took of their work.  With the computer set up beside them, they were able to work right along and complete the project without any problems.

EEME is simple to use, convenient and made it easy for me because the instructions are all in the video. All the supplies were there and I didn't have to run around and try to find the necessary pieces.  It also gave time in this case for my son and daughter to work together, but would normally be mom and child or dad and child.

About How EEME Started:
 My name is Jack. I'm the founder of EEME and a new dad. When my son was born, I spent a lot of time hunting for fun yet educational things to do with my kid. I found myself dissatisfied with all of the educational toys that existed out there. Where was something that was not only fun for kids to play with, but that also instilled the deeper knowledge of how things work?
I wanted something that would encourage more than just play and get kids to ask "why" and to say "I built that (and I can teach you how too)!"
Hence, EEME was born.
This is a perfect course if you have one of those children who is hands  on like my son was.  They can learn about the world around them.  Use the time together to build their communication skills, teach them about following directions, exploring electronics, and how to use critical thinking skills.

There is an online tour you can take to learn more about EEME and see if it might work for you.  Also, take some time to read what other TOS Crew members had to say.
