A hobby grade remote control car, the Traxxas LaTrax SST has taught my son so much about what an engineer really does. From upgrading material or equipment, to learning to identify when something is wrong, my son has been able to develop skills I had to wait for my first job to develop.
I’m loving Tinker Crate right now. Sometimes my creativity runs out on how to keep my oldest busy. For Christmas I bought my son a year subscription, and he is loving each and every box we get. And as soon as we finish one box, he immediately asks when the next one is coming!
