When my son was about eight years old, I underwent training as a water quality monitor. My son and I would go to the river once a month to test the water. My son would carry the water bucket for me and watch while I tested the water for dissolved oxygen, pH and turbidity. As he grew older, he wanted to learn how to test the water, so I purchased a Water Safety Kit for him.
As Mac grew, his interest waned in water quality, but I noticed that he loved to take things apart to see how they worked. He took his grandfather's older computer apart to see how it worked. Hoping to stimulate his curiosity, I purchased a couple of kits that included solder and wires, similar to the Learn to Solder Kit. Then he graduated to robotics and integrated circuits. I will never forget him, surrounded by pieces of printed circuit boards.
