Manny is 12 years old now and lives with his family off the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. He is the youngest of 3, homeschooled and studying introduction to programming. He loves performing science experiments and his new drone.
He is fascinated by anything electronic and has been dissecting his toys for years now.
He wants kids to be interested in electronics like himself so he came up with these kits. His first sale came at a local craft show in our town. This was the only "science fair" I could come up with. It was his opportunity to display all of his stuff, videos, and talk to people about everything he is interested in.
He is super curious and our family loves to support this curiosity (although it has become expensive :)) We have made him earn his money for this hobby through what we call "empanada fundraisers". Because Manny loves to eat, he has become somewhat of a chef. He sells his empanadas (of course I do the deep frying)to friends and family to generate the cash to buy his electronic gadgets and a new computer. He also sells his kits online.
But he's not selling them fast enough to buy his tools and materials.
So this is a small glimpse at his bio. Our family is real proud of him and can't wait to see what he does as time goes by. You can watch all of his projects and progress over the last year and a half on his Youtube channel Manny Mechanix.
