Finally, I created a new game from scratch, which I call Roulette. Getting the numbers and colors correct, making the wheel spin, showing what “bet” had been made, then identifying the winner was the challenging and exciting culmination of my course, and I got to choose that game myself.
Believe me, if I can learn to write code and create something interesting and unique on the computer, your young minds can run rings around me and enter a whole new world of computer challenges and fun. And, besides, the world you will grow up in will be dominated by computers and will demand and reward those with programming skills with fascinating new jobs and opportunities. Go for it.
You can play Roulette here.
