Parenting Tip:

Gifted kids love to see how things work. They'll take things apart to investigate the inner workings of anything from toasters and telephones to computer printers to anything else they can take apart. (No wonder they love robots so much!) If your child loves to take things apart, why not buy him or her a simple tool kit? Whenever something breaks or is no longer wanted, don't throw it away. Let your little take his tools and take it apart! This not only helps your child learn to use tools and get ready to work with robots, it also saves appliances you don't want to get rid of!
