I like to start with hardware and see where that leads. You could build a desktop with him if you had the cash and he needed a pc or on a smaller scale, set up a raspberry pi with them. What’s cooler than programming a game that you could actually turn lights and buzzers on when you play? I think raspian even comes loaded with some basic scratch Ide these days.

I love the idea of starting with hardware, too! It makes everything more tangible and accessible, and it takes the "magic" away. πŸ’«
