Some of you may have been interested in sharing your love for super agile (i.e., Lisp) programming with kids and perhaps got mixed results. You may wan to try the CCL-based AgentCubes, a 3D Creativity Tool, which allows you to build 3D games and simulations. Create 3D shapes, 3D worlds, and program them via drag and drop programming. The drag and drop, btw, turns all into Lisp. Think of it as Visual Lisp if you want.


Once you have created a 3D game you can export it as HTML5/WebGL and run it in browsers without Java or Flash.

Here are sample games produced by students. We are running a large study with over 10,000 students to see if they can learn computer science through game design (short answer: yes they can):  http://scalablegamedesign.cs.colorado.edu/arcade/

Free and commercial versions exist.

Enjoy,  Alex
