Agreed.  Very nice tool to introduce STEM at a young age.  The robotics portion of this kit should give the kids very good visual feedback on the quality of their code and keep their interest and engagement at a high level.

Very right Cabe. Nowadays the kids have so many resources to learn from. It would be quite disappointing if they are not able to achieve something exceptional in the future.

If the next generation are not tech masters, I will be knocked out. 

So much is being pumped into STEM, there are so many "teach kids programming" options that they should not be able to avoid it. 

Wish I had all this as a kid.

There are a lot of new solutions out there to promote kids' interest in STEM fields and also allow them to program robots and other devices. I've written abou a few. Hummingbird seems another one that can go on this list and will help not only kids but novice programmers take advantage of new tech.

Scientific and engineering history is evident everywhere you look in our modern world, and there are a plethora of institutions, museums, facilities and other places that celebrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ideas and innovations.
If done properly, the presidentís plan could benefit nearly everyone. Of course, given the realities of Washington politics, itís hard to tell whether anything -- or, at least, anything good -- will ever come of this proposal.
While many would balk at the idea of robots looking after children not many could argue against robots educating the younger generation to code. After all, the world they are growing up in depends on it, and itís still not -- for the most part -- being taught or mandated in schools. Thereís even an argument to be made that computer literacy is becoming as important in todayís world as traditional literacy.
As part of its commitment to STEAM education, Autodesk has expanded its offering to provide design, engineering, and entertainment software free to students, teachers, and academic institutions across the world
As part of Computer Science Education Week, Code.org is asking students of all ages to try their hand at computer programming for one hour. Even President Obama gave it a shot.
