I know a very bright little boy who excels in math, but at home he's glued to his Nintendo DS.
When I asked him what he wanted to do when he grew up he said "Make video games!"
I remember a few years ago there was mention of a MIT software called Scratch and I thought maybe this kid can do want he wants to do.
Has anyone used any of the "game development" for kids softwares out there? Can you recommend any?
