Hi Tanya,

Have you ever tried the Starcraft map editor?

Developed 20 years ago it had all sorts of loops, conditionals, and
switches baked into a map editor (Like Tiled, but cooler)

These lessons on code.org pale in comparison to that. I never understood
why they don't play Starcraft in schools....
