Young Engineers

Close shot of two children side by side from just below their shoulders to just above the tops of their heads. Child on left is holding a circuit playground over  each eye with their thumb and index fingers. The back of their hands are facing the camera, covering their cheeks and mouth. Part of this child's face is obscured by the elbow of the child on the right who has their arms in the air and is dangling a circuit playground over each eye. The child's left eye is partially visible. This child is smiling.

There's no better way to get your kid started with electronics than the Adafruit Young Engineers category. These kits, packs, and toys all offer introductions into the world of electronics for aspiring engineers.

A number of Adafruit's beginner kits are also perfect for engineers of all ages. We carry kits like the Drawdio - which turns your pencil into a theremin through conductive tape - and the ever-popular MetroX Classic Kit that, with your help, can get anyone programming METROs at a very young age. Whether you're young, or young at heart, the Adafruit Young Engineers category is perfect for your all your electronics needs!
