I found these quotes. Is it far fetched? Maybe not. We are going to have to do something to compete.
I would be surprised if every public school doesn’t have a required class in robotics mechatronics. You’ll have a return of wood shop, but it will be metal/robotics/electronics shop, and kids are going to have to learn sensors and technology.http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/03/ff_adafruit/all/1
Within the next 5 to 10 years, the Arduino will be used in every school to teach electronics and physical computing — that’s my prediction. There’s no going back.http://arduino.cc/blog/2011/02/11/why-t ... e-to-stay/
