Why have a kid unless you can spend hours creating fantastical robots?
I’m collecting a list of products to teach a 5 year-old about the world of programming and robots:
- Seymour Papert’s Mindstorm’s and The Children’s Machine (if I read the latter, is it worth reading the former still?)
- I my friend KCL recommends Hello World! Computer Programming for Kids and Other Beginners
Is 5 years old too young? LOL! If so, when’s a good age to start?
Have you taught a kid to program? What would your advice be?
