Kudo

I have been researching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and I came across this cool application, Kudo, created by Microsoft FUSE Labs.

Taken from Kudo website:

Kodu Teaches more than Programming

  • Kodu is a rich tool for narrative creation and storytelling
  • Kodu demonstrates that programming is a creative medium
  • Kodu helps children with critical thinking, breaking a complex goal into manageable steps, and iterate on the design process – an approach applicable to all academic  subjects, business and personal relationships
  • Kodu introduces the logic and problem solving of programming
  • Kodu introduces conditions and sequences, which teaches cause and effect
  • Students learn about cooperation, logic and creativity in addition to programming

I look forward to exploring this game creation program. Maybe it will be an after school activity next year.

It is a free download.
