Did you follow the landing of the latest Mars rover – Curiosity? Well if you did or even if you just know a bunch of space crazy students the latest version of Kodu is for you. Last week Microsoft announced (and launched) Kodu:Mars Edition. Download it at http://www.kodugamelab.com . Some of the new features:
I think the new robot is cute. I had an early preview of Kodu: Mars Edition and I think it has the potential for combine kids fascination with robots and space in a way that encourages them to explore computer science and programming. After all it was great software that make that amazing landing possible.
The Kodu:Mars Edition download seems to be hidden. Clues? Or is it the regular Kodu download with a world? Inquiring minds (and those of use with no mind) want to know.
Make that "us", not "use". Like I said, no mind.
It's the regular download at that link but you'll see other worlds and objects when you run it.
Got it. Thanks.
