During team meetings, "driving a mouse" would slow the flow of a presentation. I became the default computer operator for these meetings because I knew all the "shortcut keystrokes" for navigating a disk, a document, and presentation. Interestingly, if you call a keystroke an "accessibility" feature, most folks will ignore it. If you call a keystroke a "shortcut," some folks will catch on (and nerds will devour it).

This is either a case of modern technology coming "full circle" or a case of old technology becoming a modern "standard." There are so many opportunities for learning and discovery in a package like this. You didn't mention price but I'm guessing a school system could outfit a lab or small learning center within a modest budget. I'm a firm believer that basic electronics and computer integration should become foundational knowledge for young learners. This kit is a great beginning.
