Look at the products from Oscium (http://www.oscium.com/) which makes Logic Analyzer, Spectrum Analyzer and Mixed Signal Adapters for iPad/iPhones.

And remember that I was the one that mentioned "high school" -- the guys from SparkFun say "anyone who is interested in learning" (no age range from them)

Ah -- I was thinking of "high school" in UK terms -- when I was there it was from 11 to 18 -- so I think we are thinking the same thing ... sort of thing ...

Wish I could go. Alas, I am too far away. I have two comments. Why wait until the kids are in High School? My dad got me my first VOM (Volt-Ohm-Milliampmeter - before digital) on my 11th birthday. Somebody needs to develop a beginner's oscilliscope. That was when I really started learning electronics. I was able to borrow a Dumont 'scope and later I built a Heathkit dual channel 5MHz 'scope. There don't seem to be any entry level 'scopes except for the Rigol.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
