Back when I was a kid, I had a radioshack 200-in-1 science fair electronics kit this one
I loved that thing, and it sparked an interest in tech that ultimately led me to a CS degree.
Id like to buy something similar for my much younger sister, but nowdays everything I can find is arduino or raspi based. Id love to get something like that eventually, but I think it might be better to get a kit that more focuses on individual components first... Does anyone know of one sold these days?
Alternatively, if anyone has one of these and would be willing to scan the book, Id love to build one of these as a breadboard-based system.
