Still here? Great.+
I literally have no idea what I am talking about, so I need lots of help and patience.
I am searching for a gift for a bright twelve year old girl who has no
previous experience with electronics or kit building.
I would like something that will introduce her to soldering, but nothing too complex.
As you can imagine, many kids tend to be spoiled and have short attention spans.
This has to have some heft to it, some wow factor.
Now, it doesn’t have to be a commercial kit, I am willing to buy parts…just so long
as there is some kind of instruction manual on how to build the thing, with the instructions not assuming the builder has any previous experience.
I want it to be a digital alarm clock, combined with the ability to stream music wirelessly from a cell phone and from a PC. Must have dual corded and battery power.
Case should be clear plastic, so she can show off a bit.
Size to fit on a bedside table.
I know it is a lot to ask, but would like to keep the price down to $50 American.
I have ZERO knowledge in this area. 12 year old girl will have adults who can help her a bit if she gets stuck.
