    I would suggest using a cheap IC socket for the microcontroller, so that it can be removed for reprogramming — instead of soldering the chip directly on the PCB.

    My son and I made this kit during the workshop at the Maker Faire. It is straighforward to build,although many of the leads are fairly close, so the soldering can’t be too sloppy. For a beginner’s kit it is great fun.
