  • Epic Tinker – “Our memories of our first electronics projects were fond ones. These experiences sparked imagination and creativity (and, well, sometimes it’s just sparks and magic blue smoke), but we learned from these experiences each time, and it helped develop the inventor and innovator in each of us. We learn by doing, trying, experimenting. It doesn’t matter if you are making a LED blink for the first time, or if you are a seasoned tinkerer, we hope you enjoy your projects and the wonderful memories they help create.
  • A Lego a Day: New Lego train Coming in 2013 -10233 Horizon Express – “And it’s awesome looking! I have a fascination with trains that I can’t quite explain. I don’t have a desire to have a huge train layout, or even to motorize them, but I do love the Lego trains. I’ve bought several of them here and there. I think I really like the size and scale of them. And I feel they use the latest and greatest building techniques. You can learn a LOT about building from these Lego train sets.
