Im interested in developing a yr8 pic project using either Genie or PICAXE. Ive taught a PIC project before at my previous school, however I'm looking for a modern project/creative use of the PICs- not just a cyberpet. I'm interested in the possability of incorporating Textiles and PIC's. Ive been on a course using the 'DaisyPIC' circuit, however I don't think my yr8 pupils will be able to cope with surface mount electronics. Anyone used the following kits: Genie activity kit, Genie project kit, Genie jukebox kit??? http://www.kitronik.co.uk/index.php/products/project-kits/programmable-pic-kits/genie-kits-chips-and-accessories/ Any ideas? Thanks.
