Guido van Robot

I’m currently giving my grade 7/8 technology class a taste of computer programming using GvR on GNU/Linux. From the About:

Guido van Robot is a minimalistic programming language providing just enough syntax to help students learn the concepts of sequencing, conditional branching, looping and procedural abstraction.

GvR is accompanied by a set of lessons and is authored by students and mentors. Very cool.

We’ll move on to Python in a few weeks.
