educational YouTube series for kids. I found it fairly useful for my own limited electronics background plus it's something short and sweet I can use with my middle school students (or maybe younger...) The series is co-hosted by a puppet named Adabot and Adafruit founder Limor Fried. It's clear, if a bit cheezy, and whenever Adabot says "accessing database"there are some interesting facts & animations on the way!
Here's Circuit Playground Episode 1: "A is for Ampere"
