In general, the average script kiddie is aged 12-?? as anyone with a computer and the desire to become a hacker is capable of becoming one (script kiddie that is). While there are literally hundreds of thousands of script kiddies and wannabes out there, keep in mind that there are also a good chunk of true hackers as well, who are able to spot and exploit flaws in other people's code, write their own code, etc.. basically anyone who claims to be a hacker, isn't one. Unless of course they are asked by someone for their opinion based on their particular skill-set.
Script kiddies will use and abuse technology to get their name or childish online aliases known. ie. defacing websites through the use of shells, using publicly available exploits to compromise security, download trojans and/or viruses and "pwn" some victims, launch DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks, etc.. script kiddies are generally rejected by society and possess no social skills. There are so many things to be said here, but I think that sums them up for now.
