Thanks for scribing things Graham. My son is 12, and we have a little
girl who's almost 8 (and loves Age of Empires :).
We home-school, as do many of our neighbors. I think a problem solving
approach is exactly the right way to go about it. I have a very crude
Logo dialect which we might put to use. I'll have to do some research
to refresh my memory on some of those things, but I think we could do
something similar, starting with small dialects (for them to work in)
and working our way up to raw REBOL.
