I just came across your discussion. Here is something a little different that I am trying with my fifth graders. I am using Arduino, a single board micro controller, that you use to control lights, motors, etcetera. Students control the board using Sketch, an open source Integrated development environment. Build timers to robots, the sky is the limit.
Oh, I also run an Ubuntu LTSP lab in my classroom.
Just check this out https://mobilunity.com/blog/hire-security-software-developer/ as we can hope that there are many in need who will like to know what this was based on. It shares some more details that are interlinked with the development, and professional manga artists, so keep this in your mind as these are the ones we are in need to find out here. Just look for that and you can also join the forum in case you need to learn more.
