He’s kinda small, doesn’t really talk back (but could sing you a tune!), and does whatever you tell him to do (except he probably won’t clean your bedroom for you. *wink*). Meet Edison – the affordable, LEGO compatible and programmable robot that will make learning about programming […]

DK Discovery Day ~ Scratch Challenge ~ GIVEAWAY!

I’ve heard it said quite a few times in the past year or two that computer programming is the language of the future.

Perhaps it was the fact that I had a great teacher…or perhaps there’s something about history that simply caught my attention…probably a little bit of both. 😉 My son also enjoys history – especially if he can read about it.
