KIDWARE SOFTWARE offers two different Middle School and High School Computer Programming Curriculums  for Microsoft Small Basic, Microsoft Visual Basic Express, Microsoft Visual C# Express,  and Oracle-Sun  Java.   Both are self-study and self-paced tutorials and neither require prior teacher or student computer programming experience.   All of our Microsoft based tutorials work seamlessly with Microsoft DreamSpark.  Click on either one of the two book shelves below to learn more about these “kid-friendly” computer science curriculums for schools:


“I like the Computer Science For Kids Textbooks. They are clearly written and easy to understand. All in all, you folks have done a great job!”

“The tutorials were really good to use. I have a very small class of 3 and I found them to be much better than a book.”

“I think the teaching resources are great. They work very well for a class and it is good teaching & guidance for students to do on their own. ”

I was looking for some Visual Basic Express ideas……these books appeared to be just what I needed…… I bought both books…great ideas and easy to read.”

“Terrific product; terrific service. I have never had customer service that good! The people who run this company really care about whether you are a satisfied customer. And the product is good. I’m a high school teacher, and I’m teaching a first-ever computer programming class in our district. Small Basic is a great program for high school students, but the Microsoft provided tutorial is not enough. This book fills the gaps, and provides the information you need to learn Small Basic and to teach Small Basic. I am a very satisfied customer.”

“The Learn Java GUI Applications For High School Students topics are introduced progressively to ensure that students of different levels can progress at their own pace. Many exercises and problems are weaved into the chapters to maintain student interest and build confidence. Overall, I appreciated your efforts to make the Java product user friendly.”

“I like the tutorials. They were easy to follow using laymen’s terms.”

Your Small Basic books are great!”

“I enjoyed both books. I liked the format, Word & PDF, that way i can teach on my iPad. I’ll be back for more next year.”
