Super Awesome Sylvia (and her equally super-awesome parents, TechNinja and CraftNinja), quite frankly, gives me hope for humanity. We had the best time working with them on the special Mini Maker Show series they did for us, for our Kids month theme, and we can barely stop smiling after looking at each of her inspiring videos. Sylvia is definitely a maker star on the rise.

In this, the third episode of their regular Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show, Sylvia shows you how to do two simple Arduino projects. Can anyone continue to be intimidated by the idea of messing around with microcontrollers and basic electronics after seeing this video? C;mon… it’s child’s play! Great job, Sylvia!
