EDUCATIONAL SERVICES around the Arduino platform for electronic prototyping (including for kids):

We aim to get people, young and old, excited about the possibilities of making, without adding to the mountains of electronic waste. No plastic toys piling up on the shelves. All our workshop projects use a minimal set of components that can be re-used for different projects, for years and years. The same components are used in professional prototyping. Understanding electronics can enable us to fix broken stuff. Be creative with technology.
