What do people think of The Amazing Annoyatron?
I really believe in this product and the mission that teen maker @michael_nixon has embarked on here with the Amazing Annoyatron.
Coding and STEM skills are critical for today's kids, but the tools for learning those skills often aren't very fun or engaging. Not so here. Once we got through the initial setup, my 10-year-old loved using the kit to create and alter sounds, lights, delays, etc. She was excited enough to take it into class, so I consider that a big win.
If you've got an adolescent or young teen, this kit is an excellent way to gauge (or pique) their interest in coding and begin their geek journey. My kids and I are looking forward to more cool pranks and products from this young entrepreneur.
I was asked to test out the various projects and to give feedback on how easy the instructions were to follow when the product was being developed. I think I was chosen because my coding experience has been pretty much limited to running a couple of games on a Commodore 64 when I was a kid. As I worked through the projects I thought yep these are cool. If I'm thinking this as an adult, then kids will have a blast with it. (Discloure - I'm a relative of the Maker).
