Hello, i am new electronics and arduino but i have some experience. Okay this might come as a really strange question but how old you need to be to learn electronics and arduino programming and stuff like that? I would appreciate your help!

Sylvia, who with the help of her parents produces Sylvia's Super Awesome [mini] Maker Show, is about 9 and has not problem using the Arduino.  I think kids as young as 4 have taken soldering classes.  If you want to learn something there is no better time to start than now.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

probably true and I think it is wise for a parent to check the electronics, and watch while soldering.

Children will pick things up in their own pace, some fast some faster, but they must be given the chance to pick it up, so exposure is essential.

If you are in your teens and you like to build your own "gadgets"or more serious apps the forum can help you. There are hundreds of questions per day software and hardware, simple to difficult, so we can help.

What might be an idea is to see if there is a local group nearby, you can check in the local groups section, or ask in your local HW store, or maybe even a teacher at school (did I say that? smiley-wink

Just get started, and as confusius said, every journey starts with the first step smiley-wink

Lithuania, never been there but saw beautiful pictures (I knew an English teacher from Kaunas years ago). I recall some special food made of yolk - delicious.

some links - http://openbookproject.net/electricCircuits/ - to learn the basic electronics.
and some Arduino projects - http://www.earthshineelectronics.com/files/ASKManualRev5.pdf -

Succes
