    'Cool' Educational Software

    Hi All,

    I`m ICT Support for a local Youth Group and iv been asked to look into purchasing either hardware or software or a combination of both for use within the group.

    I do have some sepcs though firstly I have to be able to prove it's for educational use (That is a requirment for use of the money)

    and secondly its for use in a 12-16 group and they are lively to say the least, the area could be described as being "rough" with a high crime rate, so something to capture thier imaginations.

    Hi,

    I find that Yenka Programming is a really cool bit of software.

    It teaches simple programming and control through 3D characters dancing on screen. It engages the kids I teach (11-17) and you get free home use with it so kids can use it at home too.

    I have used it a fair bit over the last couple of months, it's great!

    Hope this helps!
