What experience do all y'all have of running a robotics club for this age group (5 thru 10 years-old) and what factors made it a success (or failure) ?
Did you use a commercial kit of parts or brew something from scratch ?
What kind of projects work well with kids this age ? — I was thinking maybe making robot flowers (yes, I know they'd all rather build robotic sharks with lasers)
