One day a week until late july


Is this school-related or like an after-school program. Reason I ask is because I've been researching available material and curriculum to host an after-school program? Have you tried Scratch or Alice?

Khan Academy is a start but isn't for everyone. The CS lessons are limited and often too much for that age group.

I know this is off the wall, but how about using minecraft with computerCraft installed?

It allows for teaching lua, and the students can see their results nearly immediately(for example, building password door locks, piston doors to hidden rooms, piston controlled elevators, and numerous other contraptions).
