Hi everyone,

Past months I've been asked to give Blender workshops to kids between 8 
and 16 years old. I searched for Blender teaching material but couldn't 
find much. I decided to use some simple models from Blendswap and hide 
the majority of buttons in the UI. Surprisingly this worked better than 
The kids were very enthusiastic and could perform the tasks pretty well. 
At the end I was asked how kids could continu learning Blender.

This motivated me to start an open website/platform in NL to teach kids 
more on technology, especially Blender & Python. But what is a good 
format for teaching Blender to kids?
Can we teach Blender to kids in a same manner as kids are thaught math 
or grammar?
Are there tutorials or program lessons available for kids?
Is anyone working on this and willing to cooperate?

Kind regards,
Monique Dewanchand
