My 15 y/o son wants to learn Ruby, Rails.
He doesn't program at all.  Great at math/science, though. Visually oriented.

Any suggestions on ways for him to start?

I'm not sure if anyone else is going to this, but O'Reilly offers admission discounts for users groups.  I inquired on behalf of the East Bay group and got this back:

Hi Aaron

Here you go

RailsConf 2008
May 29-June 1, 2008
Oregon Convention Center
Portland, OR

The user group discount code for this year is "rc08usrg" and is good for 15% off the registration price.

Feel free to post this to your mailing list.
