Looking for a last minute Christmas gift for my son. He already gets a monthly maker’s box and loves tinkering. Last year we got an Arduino board and did some basic programming displaying numbers on a display, blinking LED’s, etc. This year I want to get him another Arduino or Raspberry Pi project where you create your own programmable RC car, robot, drone, etc… Something where building and programming takes a while, but then you end up with something more useful or playful long term.
Anyone have any good recommendations for these kinds of kits for a 12 year old? I see a ton of them online of course, but would love to hear from someone with a little more first hand knowledge.
