Re: [newtech-1] Coding for Kids

Try Scratch.
It was developed for kids by MIT and the coding pieces fit together like visual Legos.  Super intuitive.  Fun!
My 5 and 7 year old girls both LOVE it, though I play with them (not that I can code!).
Good luck!

Hey everyone,

I'm setting up a laptop (osx) for my nieces, and I'd like to get them interested in programming.  When I was a kid I learned Logo, and Basic, and really enjoyed writing small programs on our Apple IIe.  

Does anyone have any suggestions for kid friendly programming out there these days?  My nieces are 8 and 5.  I think the 5 year old is a bit too young to get started, but I think 8 is old enough to get started.
