This is a fun and rewarding kit for young electronic enthusiast. This video demonstrates my 11yo son building his own AtariPunkr. It took him about 2 hours to assemble the kit with only minor guidance from me. I touched on topics such as component orientation and basic safety and the rest he did on his own.
