Idea: science packs for schools?

I think Arduino (or clones) could be really good here,  i demoed a few
simple projects at a secondary (11 - 18) science fair and got some
interest,   things like temperature etc,  thing with arduino it is more
complex but no oS to worry about so you write, compile, upload,  so
potentially better for embedded project.  you can use a pi to write to
arduino anyway,  I would look at both,  if only to raise awareness of
both and also that a good engineer uses the right tool for the job,  be
it hardware or software.
