@dominictarr brought up the idea of a game as a project. This is a great idea
because games are fun (also jifasnif), and would be something cool kids could
play and enhance going forward.
A project that represents something real life which might have been done could
help with the abstraction. This is a tough one though, because art projects kids
make these days might be more complicated than the basic holiday ornaments I remember making as a kid.
Using Raspberry Pi with Node.js support in order to teach basic electronics and programming to kids using LED's and Buttons to create different light games - @julianduque
A raspberry pi workshop would be awesome. I think I recall a raspberry pi workshop for kids at LXJS earlier this year. Will make a note to get in touch with them on lesson plan ideas. - @st-luke
