'Cause every eleven year old needs to learn the fundamentals of computer programming, there's now a board game called C-Jump that will teach them the basics of C, C++ and Java in a "cool way." With two to four players, kids will have the chance to familiarize themselves with programming languages by skiing and snowboarding all the way to the finish line.
Here's how the C-Jump creators break it down: "The child calculates number of steps in the move, including addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication of small numbers. The game helps to develop understanding of a complete computer program, formed by logical sequences of commands." Forget reading, writing and arithmetics, because for only $25 little Bobby can fast-track his way to a Computer Science degree!
