If any of these kiddie code-camp dingbats were serious about getting kids interested in coding, they'd see about getting Big Trak re-resurrected. They had a modern version available for about five minutes around 2009. Add a WIFI interface to the the thing and Bob's your uncle.
While they're at it, make available add-on modules for a camera(s), and a freakin' lazor, maybe a robot claw.

Hell, he could have made that cool by having a option to integrate a physical turtle robot so kids could see how virtual code can make things move in the REAL world.

Dynamically binding, you realize the magic. Statically binding, you see only the hierarchy.
