WOW! That GameMaker link was a real winner for all three of them! It looks quite nice and will help keep the interest in continuing. Thank you for that tip!

The Lego MindStorms was another that I had tried a year ago (it still sits in the box on the shelf - the COMPLETE set with all of the modules and available add-ons for it (including all three "brains" and the camera, not to mention the starwars set). *sigh* I think it was too far too fast at the time. Looks cool, but too far of a first leap.

I have a funny feeling that when i get home tomorrow morning in the early AM, my kids and I will be avidly downloading and trying things out the rest of the day. The page and info alone got my attention and I heartily agree with you in that [id://Learning%20how%20to%20program%20%28for%20youngsters%20of%20any%20age%29|post] - it looks FUN! I had to download the tank game and play it - lost an hour with that... specially when my business partner came over to see what was so entertaining and logged in another terminal to play it as well. We chalked it up to a great "motivational" lunch *grin*

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
