Birthday gift for 16 year son Answered

My son will be 16 next Monday. He has always been fascinated by lights. I thought about getting him the stuff needed to do all those really cool LED projects but they sound pretty complicated. He doesn't have a soldering iron etc. We have normal tools like screwdrivers etc. Any suggestions would be so appreciated. Thanks, Naomi



Make him a Third Hand and also buy pliers and a crapload of various LEDs, batteries, magnets, resistors, battery holders, switches, and other parts like that. I'm that age and that's what I would want.

Buy a soldering station / iron and some parts, he'll love it
