I hope all is well with you all. I have been quite busy with real life issues but wanted to make you aware of a psuedo-programming language developed by MIT students some time ago. It's called scratch and it's free to use: https://scratch.mit.edu
It's interesting the types of projects people can make with it. I have even seen a Pokemon Go clone ☺
Didn't know you posted about Scratch, nice! My daughter just started playing around with Scratch. She created an animation and was impressed as she found out about loops.
Scratch is great for children from primary school age.
