VISUAL BASIC 5/6 FOR KIDS (Table of Contents)
was a tutorial that was originally written in 1998 consisting of 11
chapters explaining (in simple,
easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Visual Basic application. The tutorial is written for
and directed to kids. Kids learn about project design, the Visual Basic toolbox, and many
elements of the BASIC language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in
the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for
kids to build and try. These projects include a number guessing game, a card game,
an allowance calculator, a drawing program, a state capitals game, Tic-Tac-Toe and even a simple video game
(Project Screen Shots).
VISUAL BASIC 5/6 FOR KIDS is presented using a combination of over 400
pages of notes and actual Visual Basic examples. This material should be
understandable to kids aged 10 and up. No programming experience is
necessary, but familiarity with using Windows is expected.
