We all know that kids get bored and lose their critical thinking skills and school-based information in the summer months. In education we call it the “brain drain”. Instead of having the kids that you love play video games try this Lego robot kit and make them competitive with kids interested in science and robotics. Check the age recommendations on the packages.
