Ubuntu Programming for Kids

2017-01-10  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:80 


Not sure if this is the right forum, so if there is a better forum for the question, please let me know.

My 11 year old daughter has expressed an interest in learning to program. All of our PCs are running ubuntu.

I don't know that she is ready for Java, but if someone could suggest an application where she could learn to program (she's never done it before, but she is clever), then I would be most grateful.
