I’m doing a special course in Maryland for my friend Effie. Her son Evan loves computers so I’m preparing some fun things that I hope he will enjoy. I’ve developed a “Lunar Repair” course which is actually about video game programming. I remember when I was his age and just learning about computers. My older brother Doug wrote this wonderful kaleidoscope program which would fill the screen with dazzling colors. I would try to figure out how it worked, changing a number here and there to see what it did. I would see if I could change the colors, the patterns it made, and how fast the waves of color would pass by. I have always liked that that kind of learning – through exploration and experimentation.
