Not sure where I should start as platforms are changing and programs change with time
Something that has the basics for children to start on now so they can get to doing the advance stuff as they know programming better.
Anyone that has found something that has worked or more is working well currently for children who which to get into programming.
QLD is using Scratch in schools as an entry level. My son enjoyed being involved. Might be worth looking at it, they join and they get activities to choose from etc .. Free.
