Freebee Friday: Coding the Way Forward
With most schools teaching how to use Microsoft’s ubiquitous Office suite, but it’s a shame that they don’t teach kids what they really want to know: how to program games. Kids can win up to $5,000 in prize money for the best game. Just use the free programming environment to create an imaginative game for either the PC or an Xbox console and see what happens. There are lessons on how to code, downloads and samples of projects.
