My son, I know that one day, he will give me a lecture about the things that he will use for his invention. Yes, he wants to be a scientist! Well, that is one of his aspirations at least! Anyways, I know that he will get bored when he took Chemistry and Physics, just like I did, hahahaha!
I make it a point to always converse with my son every time we have time. I ask him how school is. His favorite subject, guess what? Science! To think that he is better in Math, he is really amazed by everything that he learns in his Science subject. Maybe, because he can actually see most of the things that they study about like plants, animals, sun, moon and others. Oh, I cannot wait when he studies about the elements or the periodic table. Well, you know, how about Halogen that is actually not that visible enough. Well, I can just tell him that a Halogen Free Solder Paste is used for making the computer that he loves to use? Oh, I now, just have him google it! :)
I think he should see some Prototype SMT Stencils to further capture his interest.
