As I hold workshops, I'm learning as much as the kids do. I would like to bring more and be in tune with them, so they get the best possible experience and perspectives. And today I asked a kid what he remembers from the circuit that I have explained.

"We can make a LED blink without using an Arduino."

Priceless.

He will turn 11 in a few days and he got the essence of my message !
