Computer programming is not just for geeks anymore
Instead of saying, "Look at this cool thing I found on the Internet!" what if you could say, "Look at this cool thing I made on the Internet!"
On top of that, you don't have to have an extensive history with programming languages, either.
Introducing Scratch, which allows you to create interactive stories, animations, games, art, etc., through what amounts to a graphic user interface. The program, developed by MIT, is designed for children ages 8 and up to learn math and computers, but at the same time, develop the ability to understand the idea of how programs work.
I will be taking a test drive of Scratch in the upcoming future. Until then, try it out for yourself, and if you do anything cool, let me know and I'll add your work in my next article. It works on both a PC and Mac, so there's no excuses for not giving it a chance.
