1st Day for Intro to Programming: Lightbot

I forget who introduced the Light-bot game to me, but thank you.
I got the link from Hélène Martin. Much thanks!

First day went excellent in Introduction to Programming class. “We get to play a game?

Introduction to loops, functions (methods), and debugging all on the first day, without me saying a word? Yes please.

Side-question: Are there were parts of math that are this easy to introduce through a fun game?

    Awesome. I came across this one at Kongregate and thought it’d be a great teaching tool; dunno if I shared it on twitter but I’m glad to hear someone’s having success with it. Maybe I’ll give it a try later this year!
