Teaching kids microcontrollers through Scratch..

I posted this in another thread but thought it would go well here in the Arduino thread also...

Any time you deviate from sequential consistency, you increase the complexity of the problem by orders of magnitude.

I replied to the other thread but here I am again!

Thanks for the link, I downloaded and installed. Certainly a great way to start out with some programming :)

I have not downloaded it. Probably won't get the chance anytime soon. Keep us posted as to what you think for beginners (like me)! :mrgreen:

Installing was a tiny bit interesting. I had to make a number of folders within my Arduino folder. Then I had to copy the downloaded JAR file to the specified folder.

Once it was placed in the folder though, it worked like a charm. Load up arduino and then there's now an option to open up ardublock.

I will certainly see about putting it on my main site I.E. an install procedure and a quick intro. I think the drag and drop interface is really great!
