Spark and Board of Education Shield / Robotics Kit

One of my planned uses for Spark is as the core of a robotics kit for my son, who is dying to get involved in robotics and programming. After lots of research I think I have settled on the BOE Shield for Arduino and their Robot Kit. (

Does anyone out there have any experience with this kit (pre-Spark) or have similar plans? The idea that he can sit down with his laptop and reprogram it and control it over the network / internet should make this a real hit!

As soon as I get the kit in, hopefully next week, I’ll update this post with my experiences.
