Fathers-Day-The-Maker.pngAccording to my dad, there's a correct tool for every job. And it's called a hammer.

 

It's a life lesson that's always stuck with me and has helped me get through a great many difficulties in my days as an engineer, a maker and a DIY desperado. So as we plummet deeper and deeper into our Father's Day Badge-a-Thon rabbit hole, we're now looking at ways that dads can pass along their lifetime of invaluable knowledge and wisdom as their kids blossom into dedicated hammer-wielders themselves.

 

Today's badge asks for thoughts on the new project ideas for parents to do with their kids that could indoctrinate them into the exciting world of electronics, and making.

2) Bookmark your favourite project from anywhere on the element14 Community that'd serve this purpose for other parents looking to inspire their kids!

 

You have until 26th June, 2016, to get all the badges, so don't delay!

 

You don't have to bookmark one of these, but for inspiration...
