It's good to know there are still some of those around.  I was at the 
local electronics store the other day and ran into an 11 year old who 
was running around with a manual on Intel embedded processors and had 
his mom looking for parts to go with the 8080A processor he'd picked 
out.  I talked him into going with the Z80 for the single supply, single 
phase clock, and all of the other features that made it THE popular chip 
of 1976.  =]

I'm pretty sure I've still got a Z80 of my own kicking around, for an 
identical project, bought from the same store, about two decades ago.

It's too bad the school system does nothing to identify or encourage 
this sort of interest.  At least kids have the Internet these days, but 
even then... I can remember getting flamed on FidoNet for asking 
'stupid' questions, and it certainly wasn't an encouraging environment.
