I was just shutting down my 12yr old daughters computer. I found Visual Basic running. She has programed a working random number generator.
Sure she copied most of the code from the help screens. But she created the form, has a working text box, a lable displaying the results with a command button to generate a numer. All on her own.
Her first program! So cool....
What more could a old nerd ask for?

To throw away visual basic and start programming in C?

Hmm

Tell her to make a program which lists the first 500 prime numbers in the fastest way possible. It's really easy but might be fun for her
