In a way I am focused on this project. My target age is a bit older but not
much. I was thinking 14 to 24.
I want to teach the basics of modeling and game programming.

I have not found much in the way of good programming tools for learning. I
have made a few videos. Please check them out and tell me what you think. I
am a pro and not afraid of well given crits. I am new to this idea of
teaching with videos and am learning as I go.

I am also very fond of Pygame and Panda3d.
