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.

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)

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