Now that we are totally off topic, I have had wonderful success with
my children using the Lego Mindstorm Robotics Invention Set. I started
with them at age 7. What I love about it is it teaches basic programming
constructs and ideas without having to "type" code. Visually snap'n
blocks together that provide various constructs is easy enough for a
7-year old. They are programming without needing to fight the barrier of
a written language. To top it off.... the thing actually moves along
the floor when you are done, providing that wonderful feedback of
success (or sometimes failure).
