Well done to the Raspberry Pi foundation. My 8 year old write his first Python and Scratch programs today!
His 10-year old brother has been coding for a while but young'un was never interested despite a house full of programmable things. However, connect up a Â£25 computer to the lounge telly and he gets all interested and can't wait to show his mates and do some more coding.
Also good value was the older brother explaining 'import' in Python by saying its like borrowing some LEGO models from a mate and using them in your model.
