    What a great tutorial! Comprehensive and informative. Phil Conrod's tutorial teaches more than the syntax but also program design.

    If you liked our Begining Small Basic Programming Tutorial you are going to really like our new "Programming Kid Games with Microsoft Small Basic" Tutorial.  It picks up where our Beginning Small Basic Programming Tutorial left off.  We go into even more detail on program design, using Small Basic objects (including button controls), many elements of the Small Basic language, and how to share finished programs. Game skills learned include handling multiple players, scoring, graphics, animation, and sounds. Check the new tutorial out at our website: computerscienceforkids.com/ProgrammingKidGameswithMicrosoftSmallBasicTutorial.aspx

    We just introduced 40 fourth and fifth graders to Small Basic in a lab setting and they loved it.  They wrote and ran 3 programs in 20 minutes.  They were thrilled with their accomplishments and began to get so innovative asking 'Can I do this…' and 'Look what I did'.
