It's probably already been mentioned on this list (or one of the many
other OLPC lists), but just in case...

It may be worth exploring http://www.nerdkits.com/

A couple of excerpts from their pages:

> A NerdKit is appropriate for software hackers looking to branch
> out into electronics, and has educational material to allow even
> middle-schoolers and high-schoolers (ages 12+) looking for a
> fun challenge to learn by doing, especially with the help of a
> techie parent! A microcontroller is a small computer on a single
> chip, including processing, memory, and inputs and outputs
> -- see the Wikipedia page for more information.


> We started NerdKits as MIT students looking to share our
> experience in an educational way, and to help lower the
> barrier to entry into this field.
