I have found that kids demonstrate incredible ability to learn and use technology both software and hardware IF and that is a big if they are interested. I have seen elementary school level students learn about and talk to the details of nanotechnology as a part of a FIRST Lego League competition. In a number of cases these students had not even studied the atom in school. Using a fun and exciting program to inspire students interest is a tried and true method.

This is the right words from Mr.Peins“It’s not so much about aptitude, it’s about interest,” .When i talk to young students that it is possible for them to attend technical training programs in their summer vacations. Many felt that we are thinking very much about how to remember all this after spending time and money? I use to tell them if you have the interest to do it then automatically you will remember the things done with your hands and mind.Really the interest in it matters very much than any thing else.
