Since I'm just starting out with this blog, I think it would be a good idea to tell what its going to be about. My son, Ryan, is 8 and really likes building things. I'm trying to show him some real projects that demonstrate real world principals. We've been building robots with LEGO Mindstorms for a little while now and going over some basic circuits knowledge. The idea of building a battlebot type project gets both of us excited, so we'll be using this blog to post the project status.
